Cambridge Chorale to perform at St John’s Church in Stansted on Saturday March 23





Accomplished choir Cambridge Chorale will be performing for music@stansted at St John’s Church in the village later this month.

The choir was founded in 1994, and it is a measure of its high standards that it has attracted a series of top-flight musical directors: the late Michael Kibblewhite, Julian Wilkins, Owain Park and, since last year, Robert Brooks.

Its members are equally at home in major works like Bach’s B Minor Mass as they are in folk songs from around the world, and with composers from every century from the 1500s to the present day.

Cambridge Chorale’s website proudly announces that it has performed in English, Latin, French, German, Latvian, Korean, Welsh, Italian, Russian, Tamil, Zulu, Hebrew, Spanish, Afrikaans, Igbo and pseudo-Lappish.

The choir has released eight CDs; no lesser a reviewer than John Rutter said of one of them: “Something for everyone, sung with commitment and joy. This is what a good community chamber choir should be about!”

The choir’s concert in Stansted on Saturday March 23 from 7.30pm will include Italian and English madrigals from the 16th century as well as more modern pieces by composers including Britten, Elgar and Vaughan Williams. Something, indeed, for everyone.

Admission will be £15 on the door, with a concessionary price of £12 for over-65s, and free entry for under 21s.
