St James & St Basil’s Church, Fenham
Conducted by Sue Hollingworth
Two fabulous choirs with their award-winning conductors present a wonderful concert of choral music spanning half a millennium. There will be different treatments of familiar texts, well-known pieces and some relatively unknown contemporary compositions. There will be a dip into the Mulitiude of Voyces, German music and a couple of Coronation Anthems. The interesting pairings and dramatic contrasts will thrill, entertain, stimulate and excite.
