With Easter in Mind 

Music speaks to the heart and soul, no matter what faith or language we call our own.


Join Newport Pagnell Singers, Quartet Camerata and guest ensemble for a seasonal concert in the beautiful church of St Peter and St Paul.

‘With Easter in Mind’ we offer you an evening of moving, comforting, joyful and uplifting choral music written by composers inspired by their Christian faith.

Our programme includes some of the most popular choral pieces ever written, performed thousands of times during the years, though not usually in the same concert!

We open with Mascagni’s well known ‘Easter Hymn’ from ‘Cavalleria Rusticana’, sung by full choir, with soloist and grand organ accompaniment. Vivaldi’s ‘Gloria’ follows, accompanied by our small orchestral ensemble - a work of emotional shades, but predominantly sunny and joyful.

After the interval, Singers, Soloists, Orchestra and Organ combine to perform key pieces of the Easter music from Handel’s ‘Messiah’. After a wide range of emotional expression, we end on a gloriously optimistic note with the triumphant ‘Hallelujah’ Chorus.

All Tickets: £10

Tickets available from Cambourne Travel in Newport Pagnell; Wilsons in Olney, or by messaging me on Facebook or via this website.

Oh, What a Beautiful Evening! 


From the Bavarian Highlands - Elgar
On the Blue Danube - Strauss
Sleepytime Bach - Bach
Moon River - Mancini
Tonight - Bernstein
And much more...


In 1896 Edward Elgar and his wife Alice wrote music
and words inspired by their idyllic holidays in the
Bavarian Highlands. They loved the Alpine scenery and
the local entertainments, songs and dances.

Elgar’s songs are at the heart of a concert that brings
us a variety of scenes from summer days, from the
‘Blue Danube’ to ‘Moon River’, from the brilliance of a
‘Beautiful Morning’ in Oklahoma to the yearning
romance of ‘Tonight’ in Chicago’s West Side, by way
of an insect encounter in the heat of America’s Deep
South! To cool things down, J S Bach’s ‘Sleepers
Wake’ chorale becomes ‘Sleepytime Bach’ in a laidback
arrangement by Bennett Williams.

A mixed salad of choral, solo and instrumental music to
distil the varied joys of summer whatever the weather.
