Programme Note

From their box of delights, five a cappella singers present a collection of much varied secular music from the sixteenth to the twentieth centuries – using all five voices, or four, or three, or two, or solo – in a beautiful ancient church built long before
almost any of the music was first sung.

Refreshments will be available for a donation. Further information may be found on Facebook, or (for those not on Facebook).
