Amsterdam & Bruges (2019)
In April 2019 the choir will be embarking on their next “Sacred Space” tour. Following visits to Paris, Rome, and Venice, they will be performing in both Amsterdam and Bruges, as well as in the picturesque town of Leiden. The tour is timed so that choir members will also be able to take in the Keukenhof Gardens when they are in full bloom.

Having travelled from Northampton on Friday 5 April, they give a lunchtime concert at Saint-Salvator Cathedral in Bruges, before travelling on to Alkmaar, where the singers will stay for the remainder of the tour. On Sunday 7 April the choir will have time for a little bit of sightseeing in Amsterdam, before going on to Leiden to give a concert in the remarkable Hooglandsekerk, with its "English Cathedral" organ. Monday is a free day, with a number of choir members visiting the aforementioned Keukenhof Gardens, and then on Tuesday they give an evening concert at the St Nicholas’s Basilica in Amsterdam. After an action-packed tour, they return to Northampton on Wednesday afternoon.

The choir will perform a selection of the repertoire which they performed in their Autumn 2018 concert, which celebrated the music of Sir C. Hubert H. Parry in his centenary year. Expect I was glad, Jerusalem, selections from the Songs of Farewell, and much, much more.
