“Deck the Hall”
Our Christmas concerts on December 13th and 14th December 2019 in St Edith Hall, Kemsing, saw us caper joyfully through an Elizabethan Christmas. Proceedings were led by Chris Pottle as the anarchic Lord of Misrule, and were graced by the presence of his Majesty King Henry VIII (pictured above). The Wealden Recorder Concert provided that wonderfully authentic sixteenth century sound.
The choir was directed by Sara Kemsley, and accompanied on piano by Peter Young.
The concert was in aid of the new church hall for St Mary's Church Kemsing.
Thank you to all who came to our concerts and whose enthusiasm and singing contributed to two memorable evenings.
“A Bouquet Garni”, Saturday 11th May 2019
We presented a joyful programme of folk-inspired music to celebrate the season of blossoming hedgerows and new life returning. We were joined by a merry band of instrumentalists to perform wonderful works about the people and places of the British Isles. Featuring John Rutter's Sprig of Thyme and A Fancy of Folksongs by Cecilia McDowall.
