Charley Yates & Stondon Singers

Was a packed Monday Classics on July 6th.

Local young vocalist and guitarist Charley Yates performed LIVE in the studio for us, combining her singing and playing skills, thanks to her and to all the many visitors we had in the Chatroom that evening.

Also, in the studio, was Matthew Butt from local choir, The Stondon Singers, based down the road in Stondon Massey, who were to present their Summer concert - the annual William Byrd Memorial Concert the following evening at St Peter and St Paul's Church, Stondon Massey. Matthew explained the significance of William Byrd in the development of classical music, and told us about the choir - who specialise in performing a capella music from the 15th and 16th centuries, as well as other more modern styles.

Aside from the live music from Charley, we heard music by William Byrd (Haec Dies, Sing Joyfully) and other of the Tudor composers.

It was a packed show, rounded off by The Bangles 'Manic Monday', for obvious reasons.
