The Combined Choirs of Blessed Mary, Upham and St Peter’s Church, Bishop’s Waltham, & Guests

Although dubbed ‘the Land without Music’, Britain during the late 1800s underwent a musical renaissance. The drawing-room piano became central to domestic entertainment for the middle classes, and music in the Church of England reached new heights.

This period concert combines favourite choir anthems alongside first live performances of forgotten Victorian sheet songs fresh from the archives.

Proceeds will support Blessed Mary Church to fund Evensong at 6.30pm on the second Sunday of each month.
