The Stondon Singers

This evening we were joined in the studio by David Schacht ahead of their Autumn Concert next week.

You can hear the Stondon Singers at The Priory Church of St Laurence, Blackmore on Friday 19th November at 8.00pm. They will be performing under the baton of their conductor Christopher Tinker, accompanied by Stephen King (Organist of Brentwood Cathedral), for a programme of music by JS Bach and Benjamin Britten.

Bach's 'complete' motet (as David put it) 'Jesu Meine Freude' is contrasted by three very contrasting pieces by Benjamin Britten - his Te Deum, Jubilate and his setting of the intriguing poetry of Christopher Smart - 'Rejoice in the Lamb'

Tickets are £10, £8 concessions and £3 (age 15 and under), they are available from James Dace Music Shop, Broomfield Road, Chelmsford, The Post Office, Blackmore and members of the choir. or telephone 01992 522300, or email

The choir are also looking to recruit new singers in all parts - so if you fancy singing some interesting music, mostly unaccompanied with his friendly chamber choir, do please give David Schact a call on 01277 810576.
