On the 9th April 2016 the Needwood singers will travel to St.Mary’s Priory Church, Tutbury, DE13 9JF to give a concert with orchestra and professional soloists.
The concert will consist of excerpts from Handel’s Messiah and a relatively new work (2008) by Howard Goodall entitled Eternal Light. This is a requiem with both Latin and English texts.
Howard Goodall is probably best known for his theme music for The Vicar of Dibley (The Lord is my Shepherd) and for An Island Parish. It will, therefore be a concert of contrasts, from the well known and loved Messiah to Eternal Light which will probably be new to both choir and audience.
Tickets will cost £10 (free to under 16s) and will include interval refreshments.
