An Evening with The Oriel Singers - a 7.30pm concert in The Church of the Holy Rood, Ampney Crucis.
Come and join us for a mixed programme of music written and arranged in the last 100 years! We will sing chansons by Poulenc, Elizabethan songs by Gryspeerdt, folk songs by our own conductor Ben Sawyer plus the mesmerising, accusatory and utterly sublime Reproaches by John Sanders.
This glorious church is truly ancient, with a Saxon doorway, a list of Rectors of the parish since 1304 and carvings which survived the English Civil War unscathed. Our concert is in aid of repairs to the church organ.
Tickets cost £12 (free for students) and are available at the door, or in advance using the PayPal button below. We will pass the details of all online sales to the front desk and so you will not need a physical ticket.
