Rehearsals for our Summer concert Music for Monarchs are coming on apace – we’ve been enjoying revisiting some old favourite pieces, including Britten’s Choral Dances from Gloriana, Parry’s coronation anthem I was glad, as well as less familiar works including a setting of Psalm 100 by HRH Prince Albert, and a brand-new arrangement of Greensleeves written for this concert by our musical director James Davy.

The mixture of music from the 16th century to the 20th is challenging but very rewarding and the concert will also feature pieces for organ and piano, including piano duets written for HM the Queen and her sister Princess Margaret. We hope that you can join us to hear the results!
