Join us in St Peter's Church, Stockbridge on 8th July at 7:30pm for Music for a Summer's Evening, a fabulous, summer fizz of madrigals, folksongs and toe-tapping jazz – including Little Jazz Madrigals by Bob Chilcott, Songs & Sonnets from Shakespeare by George Shearing and Three Elizabethan Part Songs by Ralph Vaughan Williams. 

Two very special musicians will provide accompaniment on piano and double bass: Nicholas Salwey (Head of Keyboard, Winchester College) and Alastair Hume (founder member of the King’s Singers). The choir’s brilliant new conductor Jamal Sutton will be in charge.

After setting the mood with the lively short piece ‘Your Soul is Song’ by contemporary American composer Jake Runestead, the choir will sing four well-known madrigals: ‘Sing we and chant it’; ‘Weep, O mine eyes’; ‘O that the learned poets’; and ‘Fyer! Fyer!’.
Later in the programme these madrigals will be repeated … but this time set by Bob Chilcott with some modern jazz vibes! A perfect programme for a summer evening’s light entertainment.

The choir is well established in Winchester and the South and 2024 marks their 40th anniversary year. See the choir’s website: www.southernvoices.co.uk for information on this and more details about becoming a member, a friend and much more.
