Enjoy an opportunity to revel in some sumptuous music, conducted by our Director of Music, David Dewar.

Evelyne Beech will be our soprano soloist, and Fiona Brown will accompany on organ and piano.

From Tallis and Palestrina to Mascagni and Elgar we celebrate the achievement of Western music across the European continent. Bach, Handel, Mendelssohn are, naturally, also represented in the programme - with their particular styles informing the historical thread.

This concert is in aid of the St Andrew's Church Spire Appeal
