The William Byrd Singers, conducted by Keith Orrell, invite you to our forthcoming concert 'Dona Nobis Pacem' on the unusual date of 29 February. Also unusual is our use of both organs in Christ Church, played by Richard Lea and Robert Woods. As well as playing duets, they will accompany the choir in Vierne's Messe solennelle.

The universal theme of peace is explored in a wide variety of styles, from Joubert's dramatic settings of texts a thousand years old to Faure's popular Cantique.

Clausen re-imagines John Sheppard as past and present echo the quest for peace felt by every generation.

We once again present a programme to delight and inspire you in the welcoming atmosphere of Christ Church. We look forward to seeing you there!
