Music for a summer evening from a range of British composers, to include Britten’s “Flower Songs” and Tippett’s wonderful “Five Spirituals” from “A Child of our Time”, along with works by Delius, Howells, Finzi and others.

Refreshments will be available during the interval.

A magical evening of summer choral music presented by one of Surrey’s premier choirs. The sumptuous sounds of the likes of Delius, Vaughan Williams and Finzi will fill the grand spaces of Epsom’s largest historic building. Images of English summer idylls abound in songs including Delius’ ‘Summer Night on the Water’ and the exquisitely beautiful miniature ‘The Bluebird’ by Stanford. As a nod to her Majesty’s significant birthday this year, a collection of songs published as ‘A Garland for the Queen’ for her coronation will present masterpieces by Vaughan Williams, Finzi and Herbert Howells. Add to the mix the ‘Five Spirituals’ by Tippett and Britten’s ‘Five Flower Songs’ and it will be a true feast of the best of 20th music from these fair Isles.

The programme has been devised by conductor Piers Maxim, a man with choral music in his blood, and whose skills have been honed from years of working professionally with all forms of music for the voice.

St Martin’s Church is the Epsom Chamber Choir's ‘home’ venue but they have been seen and heard in some of London’s key venues, in Paris and Brussels, and in cathedrals across the country.
