Bedford Gallery Quire are delighted that they will be giving this year’s concert of
period seasonal music in the atmospheric setting of the 19th century thatched
Congregational Chapel at Roxton.
The Quire perform music of the West Gallery period (from the early eighteenth
century to around the middle of the nineteenth century). In this period bands of
singers and instrumentalists would provide the music for social occasions as well as
church services in rural communities. With the same joy as their forebears, the
singers and players will perform music recreated from original manuscripts, in
costume and using mainly authentic instruments, and will set the music in context
with historically accurate narrative.
The concert is on Saturday December 9th at 7:30 pm. Tickets will be available on the door at £10. More information on the quire’s website www.bedfordgalleryquire.org.uk
