Last Saturday my first concert directing The Orlando Singers took place in Wells Cathedral. This was the first item, one of many lovely works in honour of the Blessed Virgin Mary, from six centuries.
After our Wells Cathedral concert on 17 June, there are three more events in our 2017 Season. Sign up for our mailing list to receive further details and online booking options.
