About

A Musical Midsummer Treat

On 25th June at St Andrew's Church, Surbiton, KT6 4DS Kingston Choral Society will present a Celebration of English Choral Music spanning over a century.

The audience will be treated to a musical box of delights, ranging from stirring anthems by Elgar, Wood, Balfour Gardiner and Jonathan Dove and featuring Parry's I was Glad (chosen in honour of the Queen's Platinum Jubilee), before moving into the secular realm with Cecilia McDowall's exuberant A Fancy of Folksongs and the delightful And Since to Look at Things in Bloom.

KCS commissioned this lovely cycle of five songs from our former Musical Director Graham Ross (now Director of Music at Clare College, Cambridge) in 2013. Its charming melodies celebrate the beauty of nature and the ebb and flow of life through the changing seasons, with lyrics by poets including A E Houseman, Tennyson and Ben Jonson.

The choir will be accompanied on piano and organ by Gavin Roberts and conducted by Andrew Griffiths, who has recently returned from a tour of the United States with his early music vocal ensemble, the highly acclaimed Stile Antico.

Kingston Choral Society is grateful for the financial support of the Humphrey Taylor Richardson Charitable Trust.
