15 October WS - Come and Sing Creative Fun for Children

Every Come & Sing day is a great opportunity to spend a day focused on a major work under the baton of the musical director Tom Hammond-Davies and are always much enjoyed.  The day concludes with a mini-performance for friends and family.  The work this year is The Armed Man, a  Mass by Welsh composer Karl Jenkins, subtitled "A Mass for Peace".

The Armed Man was commissioned by the Royal Armouries Museum for the Millennium celebrations, to mark the museum's move from London to Leeds, and it was dedicated to victims of the Kosovo crisis. Like Benjamin Britten's War Requiem before it, it is essentially an anti-war piece and is based on the Catholic Mass, which Jenkins combines with other sources, principally the fifteenth century folk song "L'homme armé" in the first and last movements. It was written for SATB chorus with soloists (soprano and Muezzin) and a symphonic orchestra.  [Wiki]

Wooburn Singers

The Wooburn Singers were founded more than 50 years ago by the late Richard Hickox.  The group performs 4-6 concerts a year in the area with concert tours every other year. The group of  auditioned singers perform a variety of musical genres.  Some concerts are a capella and others are accompanied by baroque orchestras, harps, and on occasion a jazz trio.
