Jazz, Shakespeare and the Latin Mass!


 
Our Choral Jazz and Blues concert is nearly here!
It's on Saturday week - 14th July.

The pieces in this concert represent a fusion of two styles. Mass in Blue, Will Todd's highly popular jazz setting of the Latin Mass, combines his background in sacred choral music with his love of jazz. George Shearing's 'Songs and Sonnets from Shakespeare' also combine his English musical background with American Jazz influence. John Rutter, a good friend of George Shearing, subsequently wrote the Birthday Madrigals in a similar style for  Shearing's 75th birthday. We hope that you will enjoy listening to these pieces as much as we enjoy singing them!

Note that the concert starts at 6.30pm.
