The choir’s spring concert is in the beautiful church of St George’s in Trotton, West Sussex, somewhere we have never sung before.

The programme for the concert includes Night Flight by Cecilia McDowall, Agnus Dei by Samuel Barber and Requiem- (A Thanksgiving For Life) the 2007 composition by Sir Philip Ledger, who was for many years the Director of the Choir at King’s College, Cambridge.
Night Flight marks the centenary of the first woman, the American Harriet Quimby, to fly across the English Channel in 1912. She received little recognition for this remarkable feat, overshadowed as it was by the sinking of the Titanic just the day before. Written for a cappella choral ensemble and cello solo the three songs are settings of poems by British poet Sheila Bryer.
Barber’s Agnus Dei is a choral composition based on an arrangement of his well known Adagio for Strings.
Tickets £12, available from One Tree Books and on the door.
