Posted: May 4, 2014
Location: England, United Kingdom
Choir type: Other Choirs
Following on from our recent announcement that the Heritage singers and Masterworks chorale from Yorkshire, England, are to be touring in New York next February, (17-22nd) - the repertoire has now been announced, we are still looking for expressions of interest from Churches, concert halls, other performing groups etc that may like us to visit for a choral service, concert or workshop on these dates and the releasing of the repertoire may assist any church to make a decision
The Central work for concerts will be the fairly rare Handels Foundling Hospital anthems, we have performed these before in a Hospital and the texts of them make them suitable for fund raising events, these will be surrounded by other music from Tomkins, Purcell, Croft, Gibbons, Joubert, Morley and a special section - the York Minster connection - music by Barnby, Bairstow, Jackson and myself - suitable for both evensongs and other services (vespers etc) and recitals
Please do not hesitate to get in touch if you are interested in looking at the possibility of us visiting, there are no fees nor hosting required, the choir is staying in Manhattan.
