NORTH HERTS GUILD OF SINGERS


We are a happy and successful choir which has been going strong for more than 50 years. Based in Hitchin, we are one of the best-known and best-supported choirs in the area.

NOT SOLEMN AT ALL

Surely singing a Latin Mass has never been so much fun... the choir could hardly keep from dancing and audience members were rocking in the pews as we performed Rossini's delightful Petite Messe Solennelle at Walsworth Road Baptist Church on July 13th. All those weeks of practice paid off as Harry inspired us to give everything we had to the fiendish fugues, while our four soloists - Daisy Livesey, Louise Wood, Matt Sotillo-Cooke and James Bartlett - brought their exceptional talents to the bits in between. Colin Spinks at the piano and George Inscoe on harmonium added bags of drama, and our congratulations go to all seven wonderful professionals. Thanks as always to the good people of WRBC for their hospitality and refreshments.

Now we have a break before beginning work on CPE Bach's Magnificat and Handel's Dettingen Te Deum in September.

TICKETS

We hope you will come along to one of our concerts! In November we will be performing CPE Bach's Magnificat and Handel's Dettingen Te Deum, two works new to the choir (at least in recent memory! If anyone can remember a previous Guild performance please get in touch).

In December we perform for the first time an exuberant piece from contemporary composer Oliver Tarney, based around three French carols, Missa Media Nocte.

More details and booking information to come.
