Summer Concert 2016

We are delighted to be able to present a Summer Concert under the

Musical Directorship of Marc Yarrow and Accompanist Tim Nail


Our two main works will be the beautiful

Schubert: Mass in G and Haydn: Te Deum.

We will then perform that favourite of many choirs and audiences alike

 Faure: Cantique de Jean Racine, followed by

Mozart: Motet - Ave Verum Corpus, Franck: Panis Angelicus

Elgar: As Torrents in Summer, Holst / Spring-Rice: I Vow to Thee, My Country

(arr. Marc Yarrow)

and Gilbert & Sullivan: Hail Poetry.


Before the concert, you are invited to the St. Giles Church Hall, Upper Shoreham Road, Shoreham-by-Sea, when you can buy a glass of wine.

Refreshments will again be available during the interval.

Why Gift Aid is important to us.

When you pay your subscriptions, a percentage (25%) can be claimed back from HMRC if you are a

UK tax payer.

We have to hold records of those people that wish to allow their subscriptions to be 'Gift Aided'. Please download and print a form or ask the choir's treasurer for a copy.
