- Season 2014/15
Welcome to the new season for the Wooburn Singers!
This year, we are featuring another of our popular Come And Sing days. On 27th September at the Beaconsfield School we will be taking on Handel’s Dixit Dominus, led and conducted by our musical director Tom Hammond-Davies. For details of how to get involved, get in contact through the details listed here.
Our full programme for the season is coming soon, but our next concert will be in partnership with the Wooburn Festival, performing Fauré’s Requiem and works by Sir George Dyson at All Saint’s Church, Marlow. Click here for more details.
We hope you’re looking forward to this season as much as we are.
The Wooburn Singers
- New CD released
Wooburn Singers are delighted to announce the release of a new compilation CD, A Vision of Light. In June 2013 as part of our farewell to our Music Director Greg Beardsell the choir gave the premiere of a new work by Gabriel Jackson, Three prayers, with a vision of light. The work was commissioned by the choir to mark Greg’s 8 years with us, and the CD includes the first performance. Also included is a selection of a cappella pieces recorded at our concerts under Greg’s direction in the last two years. For more details, see the Recordings page.
Also still available are two earlier compilations, Calm Me, O Lord: Wooburn Singers in Concert and Wooburn Singers at Christmas.
Our CDs are £5 each. We can’t currently accept on-line payment for CDs (watch this space), but copies can be ordered from choir members, or via the Contact form (£2.00 per order for postage and packing).
