A Springtime Concert
Saturday 12th March 2016, 7.30pm
All Saints Church, Northampton
- Purcell - Funeral Music for Queen Mary
- Bruckner - Motets
- Wood - Hail Gladdening Light
A stunning programme of music for choir, organ and brass, using the galleries of Northampton's fine Baroque Church, also featuring works by the noted English composer Charles Wood, the 150th Anniversary of whose birth is celebrated this year.
The Swarbrick Singers were formed thirty-two years ago by their director, Ian Clarke, whilst he was an Organist of All Saints' Church in Northampton.
Their name comes from Thomas Swarbrick, an 18th century organ builder whose organ case still stands in All Saints'.
The group has built up an enviable reputation as one of the finest small choirs in this part of the country. Their programmes show their expertise and musicality in a wide range of music, from many centuries: Renaissance masses and motets, Elizabethan and Italian madrigals, early to late Baroque music, including the Bach motets, works by Mozart and Haydn, Brahms and Buckner, Britten and Tippett, and many more composers. They sing music both sacred and secular from all periods, and are much in demand for weddings, Christmas concerts, and fund-raising events, in addition to their regular concert programme.
