I chatted this morning with Matthew Butt, PR Officer with the Stondon Singers, ahead of their Choral Masterpieces from Venice concert next weekend in Blackmore. Matthew spoke about the history of the choir, which was formed in 1968, originally to celebrate the work of William Bird, a composer who spent the latter part of his life in Stondon Massey. Saturday’s concert will feature three works from the Renaissance period, with accompaniment from the highly acclaimed Meridian Sinfonia. Matthew explained that the Stondon Singers perform regularly through the year, including an appearance at the Blackmore Village Fair in May.
