Bishop Auckland chamber choir hosts “Come and Sing” events

Sunday, 24th April, 2016 - 2:30pm

St Mary's, Staindrop

The Andreas Ensemble, which holds its regular rehearsals in St. Andrew’s, South Church, is to host two “Come and Sing” events for choral singers: one in St. John’s Church, Neville’s Crosson Saturday 23rd April and another in St. Mary’s Staindrop on Sunday 24th April, both beginning at 2.30 pm.

The “Come and Sing Gounod” afternoons centre on his Messe Brève no.7 “aux
chapelles”, a delightfully simple setting of the Mass, which is both delightful to sing and easy on the ear.

The Come and Sing events provide the opportunity for all choral singers to come and perform this lovely music together with members of the Andreas
Ensemble.

The events are free of charge.

A variety of other choral music will be included, including pieces by Tomkins, Tallis and Palestrina; even a couple of Northumbrian folks songs for
light relief!
