Sacred Heart Programme Released

We’re counting down the days to our next concert at Sacred Heart in the centre of Bournemouth on Saturday 15th December at 7.30pm Musical Director, Mark Burstow, comments on the rich variety of the programme: ‘Out of the eight items in the first half for example – five are contemporary, original compositions for men’s choirs. We will also be singing some really challenging music by Poulenc and Mendelssohn (very exposed and unaccompanied) and a set at the end of the second half that is genuinely entertaining and hopefully connects with audiences.’ You can download...
