Our next concert, in St George's, Headstone, on Saturday 21st March at 7.30 pm, presents sacred
music from two very different eras. We have a selection of beautiful Marian motets by Victoria and Guerrero,
the most celebrated composers of the Golden Age of the Spanish Renaissance. Zoltán Kodály's
Missa Brevis, expressive and highly charged, reflects the extraordinary circumstances of its first performance in
the basement of the Budapest Opera House, at the height of one of the most savage battles of WWII.
Tickets for this concert are available on the door, or in advance via WeGotTickets.

|Amici Chamber Choir at Pinner Parish Church.
The Amici Chamber
Choir is based in the Harrow area of northwest London, UK. Around 35 experienced and enthusiastic amateur singers form one
of the area's leading chamber choirs. Rehearsals are in Pinner on Thursday evenings at 7.30pm. There are at least three
concerts a year, including one in a prestigious Central London venue such as St James's Piccadilly. Most other concerts
are in the Harrow area.
Under the guidance of musical director David Gould, the choir performs a challenging and varied repertoire of choral music and seeks to continually improve its tradition
of excellence. The repertoire covers both sacred and secular works, from Renaissance church music and madrigals to music
of the present day.
The choir gave the
first British performance of CPE Bach’s St Markus Passion at St James’ Church, Piccadilly in March 1988
and the first London performances of JS Bach’s St Mark Passion in St John's, Smith Square in February 1989
and of Gretchaninov's Liturgia Domestica in St James's, Piccadilly in December 1999.
In June 2009, the choir gave
the first performance of Blundering Nature by Noah Wilke in Kenton Methodist Church. And in May 2010, 20 members
of the choir sang in a performance of Mahler's 2nd Symphony: The Resurrection, with the Bournemouth Symphony
Orchestra under the direction of Marin Alsop - see Reviews.
