Our 4th Annual Music Festival 2017: with the St. Nicholas’ Singers performing the first concert of the week, singing John Rutter’s ‘Requiem‘, Vaughan Williams ‘O Taste and See‘, Stopford’s ‘Ave Maria‘ and many more beautiful anthems and songs.

Our 3rd Annual Music Festival in June 2016 commenced with the St. Nicholas’ Singers – community choir singing some more beautiful music from our favourite composers – Bach’s ‘Jesu Joy of Man’s Desiring‘, Charpentier’s ‘Messe de Minuit’, Mozart’s ‘Ave Verum’, and closing with Hammerstein’s ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’ and other anthems.
Other choirs, including the St. Nicholas’ School Choir and Merchant Taylors Girls’ School, contributed to the week-long festival. A finale of RSCM choirs sang Faure’s Requiem on the last night.
Our 2nd Annual Music Festival in June 2015 began with the St. Nicholas’ Singers Community Choir with Schubert’s ‘Mass in G‘, followed by other classical choral work and popular melodies.
A week-long programme of local talented musicians and choirs was heard throughout the week and acted as a show case for local talent from local school choirs, workplace choirs, jaszz ensembles and professional organist, Ian Tracey. On our last night, RSCM choirs sang Vivaldi’s ‘Gloria‘. A finale on Sunday night heard the whole of St. Mark’s Gospel sung – folk style!
