Vaughan Willams and Byrd feature in concert on July 11th

Writtle Singers are now preparing for their summer concert on July 11th. This will be Ralph Vaughan Williams' wonderful G minor Mass and the William Byrd 5 part Mass. Both composers have local connections, Vaughan Williams collected his first folk song Bushes and Briars in Ingrave in Essex, not that far from Writtle, and this piece will also be incuded in the ptrogramme on 11th July. William Byrd lived in Stondon Massey and spent some time in Ingatestone Hall where this 5 part mass was almost certainly performed.

Check back here for more details on this concert soon.
