Today's guest was Hugh L'Estrange from The Quorum Singers of St Albans




On Saturday 27th April 2013 at 7.30 pm The Quorum Singers of St Albans present A Concert of Sacred and Secular Music.  The programme includes Mendelssohn's Lord in thy Mercy Grant us Peace, Cesar Franck's Panis Angelicus, and three works by Rutter: The Lord Bless you and Keep you, All Things Bright and Beautiful, and Amazing Grace; Parry's Music When Soft Voices Die, and Sullivan's The Long Day Closes.

Entrance is via ticket which can be obtained in advance via Jill Halsey or by contacting the Quorum Secretary or on the evening itself for £9 or £7 concessions.  The church is just behind WHSmith's in town and parking is available at the nearby 'Gombards' car park just off Veralum Road.  All proceeds from this concert will go to support the Dagnall Street Baptist Church 'home' charity 'The Living Room' (www.thelivingroom.me.uk).  This charity has been set up to help addicts in their recovery and to support the families affected by addiction issues.   

Quorum was founded in 1989 to sing at the celebrations for the opening of the Dagnall Street Baptist Church Cross Street Centre.  After the church celebrations, Quorum continued as a performing group on a charitable basis and has donated many  thousands of pounds to many different charities.   All proceeds from concerts are given to charity and the everyday running expenses of the choir are covered by the members themselves.  With between 16 and 20 dedicated singers, the group attempts smaller and eclectic choral works, often in other languages such as German.  For more information about Quorum, please see their website www.quorumsingers.org.uk or talk to Jill Halsey.
