April 2015 | An Easter Celebration

In April 2015 Vox Cantab returned to St Michael and All Angels, Chalton for a concert of one-to-a-part seasonal music by composers from 16th-century Europe.

The same concert was given at St Peter-on-the-Green, Froxfield, and the Choir also sang Byrd’s Five-part Mass at a Eucharist service at All Saints’, Steep, on the Sunday morning.

We had a lovely daffodil-filled weekend, and are grateful to everyone who made donations to our 2015 Summer Outreach Project.
