‘A Concert of Heavenly Harmony’ will be presented at Bolton Parish Church on Sunday 29th August at 7.30pm and will include Handel’s ‘Ode for St Cecilia’s Day’, Vaughan Williams’ ‘Serenade to Music’ and the first performance of John Ellis’ ‘The Mass of the Grove’.
The new work was composed by the choir’s organist/accompanist and member of the Lakeland Composers, John Ellis. This beautiful inspiring work is based on a selection of prayers and poems and was completed by John some three weeks before he lost his battle with cancer earlier this year.
