The Sussex Song Makers: From Bach to Betjeman

6:00 pm Saturday 16th September

The Sussex Song Makers, directed by Elizabeth Muir-Lewis, will present another mixed and exciting programme of music and poetry in aid of the mural restoration fund for Berwick Church.

Among the ensembles will be two sublime Bach Cantata duets, complimented by poetry, and a fascinating poem by JS Bach himself! A feast of early music by Monteverdi, Paisiello and Caldara will start the programme, with poems by Keats and Byron. The first half will end with Mozart's beautiful “Laudate Domine” for soloist and ensemble. The second half will be a mix with two Roger Quilter songs, one solo (Go lovely Rose) and the other an ensemble (Weep you no more) , complimented by a John Betjeman poem “A Subaltern's Love Song”. Other pieces by Liszt, John Rutter, Saint-Saëns, Elgar and Armstrong Gibbs will make up this entertaining and varied programme.

Since last year in this lovely church, the Sussex Song Makers have had much success, performing in St Paul’s church in Covent Garden, and returning next year for the third time. The poetry reader will be Nicholas Chisholm.
