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
