Music-lovers who enjoy hearing sublime choral singing in church will not want to miss Noteworthy Voices’ Epiphany Concert this weekend.
Founded by chorister Richard Long, Noteworthy is a mixed choir of about 20 members. Their fine ‘a cappella’ debut in 2015 was highly rated by local audiences.
As Epiphany is the season of gladness, hope and light, Musical Director Ansy Boothroyd has chosen a programme of atmospheric and joyful pieces: Morten Lauridsen’s much-loved work ‘O Magnum Mysterium’ is complemented by two earlier versions from Victoria and Poulenc.
Other delights in store include works by Tavener, Grieg and Tchaikovsky as well as favourite modern classics such as Peter Gritton’s ‘Winter Wonderland’: rich close-harmony at its very best.
The concert is at St Nicholas Church Pevensey, on Saturday January 23 at 7pm, and is the first celebrating its 800th anniversary year. Tickets will cost £6 on the door, and student concessions are available.
The St Nicolas Concerts are supported by Gaby Hardwicke, BPE Business Consultants, Priory Court Hotel, Visick Cars, Carr Taylor Wines and Sunshine Music. For more information see: www.noteworthyvoices.co.uk., or www.stnicolas800.org.uk
