All Saints Marthall Presents
"Sing we and chant it"
A concert of 16th & 17th century madrigals and organ music by Quintessence.We are a newly formed ensemble of 5 from the NorthWest. We met through singing with the "John Powell Singers", a choir that tours across Europe and also sings the Daily Service on BBC Radio 4 on a regular basis. We are going to perform music by composers from some of the countries we have sung in, for example; Monteverdi and Gesualdo from Italy, and composers from Germany and France. At this time there were several notable English composers such as Morley, Wilbye and Gibbons some of whose works we will be performing. The date of the concert is FRIDAY APRIL 15TH 2016 in the church at 7pm. The Hall will be available for parking and refreshments afterwards. It is free entry with a collection at the end going to church funds. Nigel Bird, Organist at All Saints.
