NORTH HERTS GUILD OF SINGERS


The North Herts Guild of Singers is 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.


SINGING AT HOME

Choir members spent the autumn term rehearsing via Zoom and staged two successful At Home concerts. In November we performed Joseph Haydn’s oratorio ‘The Creation’ to pre-recorded learning tracks created by professional singers just for us, with music laid down on piano by our accompanist Colin Spinks. A recording of one of the choruses can be found under About/Listen. Then at the end of term we were joined by friends and family members for a wonderful Christmas concert and this time we produced a virtual recording of Away in a Manger, in a less familiar version. This is also available on About>Listen or you can hear it by following this link

WHy not come to one of our concerts?

We hope to be back singing and performing before too long. Our original programme has had to change. In March we were to sing Bach's great work, the B Minor Mass, accompanied by a baroque orchestra and some fine young soloists. It may be we'll have another go at that before too long. July was to bring Rossini's Petite Messe Solonelle (with piano and harmonium). 

In the meantime, the choir are having weekly online sessions with our MD and our accompanist. We are still together as a choir and learning new ways of making music until we can sing together in the same place.
