We are delighted to visit Eltham for an evening of choral gems at Holy Trinity Church. The concert is part of their annual festival, this year supporting the work of the parish and Christian Aid Week when people come together from all walks of life to help the world's poorest communities.

Our varied programme aims to please all tastes with music from the Renaissance to the present day. It ranges widely between popular songs and inspirational music for the church, from catchy European madrigals and American 'old standards' to classic British anthems. Composers include Queen Elizabeth I's favourite, William Byrd; from a similar period, Maddalena Casulana, first female composer to have her work published; Sir Hubert Parry whose centenary we celebrate this year; evergreen songsmiths George Gershwin and Cole Porter; and lauded contemporary Sir James MacMillan.

Gerald Finzi's My spirit sang all day, Thomas Morley's Now is the month of maying, and Marvin Hamlish's The way we were are three examples to give you a feel for the mix of joyful and moving songs we've chosen for your entertainment. In addition we are very pleased to be joined by Eltham-based pianist, Helene Albrecht and Holy Trinity's Director of Music, Alan Wilson on the organ for contrasting solo items.

Born and raised in Eltham, conductor Alan Vincent was a pupil at Deansfield Primary School and former Head of Music at Crown Woods School (now Stationers' Crown Woods Academy). For a short spell in the seventies he was organist at Holy Trinity Church and is now very much looking forward to returning with his choir from Kent.
