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.


BACK IN ACTION


The choir has now been back rehearsing live for almost three full terms and preparations are well in hand for our fourth post-pandemic concert.
 

JUBILEE COME AND SING


We were delighted to welcome a number of guest singers at our special celebration of the Queen's Platinum Jubilee, a full day workshop of Mozart's stunning Coronation Mass alongside three other Coronation Anthems.

It proved to be a wonderful, rousing day of singing ending in a full sing-through with four up and coming young soloists, Rachel Ridout, Louise Wood, Robert Folkes and Samuel Morton-Morris. The day was led by our own Harry Bradford, an exceptional prize-winning conductor rapidly making a name for himself. As a young chorister Harry sang with the Chapel Royal Choir and still sometimes joins them on special Royal occasions - including the service for the Jubilee!

Our Next Concert

Our concert on Saturday 2 April was billed as an evening of celebration, and so it proved! Handel’s rousing Coronation anthems, paired with Stanford’s majestic Te Deum in B flat and Mozart’s exuberant Missa Brevis in B flat, filled a joyous evening and our thanks go to soloists Claire Ward, Sally Lundgren, Alexander Hume and Johannes Moore, guest organist Richard Leach, our hosts at Walworth Road Baptist Church and of course our own inimitable Harry Bradford.


Next we will be back at a favourite venue, St Mary's church in Ashwell, for a programme of opera choruses and songs by Gilbert and Sullivan on 9 July. See the poster and information in the next column...
