Phonex Singers' Renaissance and Baroque concert for Stogursey
9:00am Sunday 6th October 2013 in What's On
THE Phoenix Singers make a return visit to Stogursey this month for a concert paying homage to the great Renaissance and Baroque Church composers.
The Taunton-based chamber choir’s ‘Golden Age – Stormy Times’ performance stars the works of Byrd, Gibbons, Palestrina and Monteverdi, spanning what they believe to be a golden age for church music.
The first half of the concert will look at work from European composers, while the second half focuses on music produced by English composers of the time.
Each half of the programme will also give the audience a chance to hear the fine organ at Stogursey as organist John Young performs music of the same era.
The Phoenix Singers’ concert starts at 3pm on Sunday, October 13. Tickets are £10 each for adults from Taunton Tourist Information Centre on 01823- 432704 or from thephoenixsingers.co.uk (students and children go free).
