A delightful concert by a talented local choir, Illuminati
Residents of Seckford Care and members of the public were treated to a delightful summer’s evening concert by Illuminati, a talented local choir, on Saturday 8th June.
The evening concert was held in the Victorian Seckford Chapel, which sits at the centre of the historic Almshouse building. The repertoire was varied including works by Tallis, Gibbons, Jenkins some madrigals, and even included an amusing Highway Code set as a Gregorian Chant! Each piece was introduced by a choir member which added to the listeners enjoyment. We learnt that one of the pieces was composed in 1547 by a fellow courtier of Thomas Seckford!
The concert was in two parts and well attended. Guests enjoyed some light refreshments, served in the cloisters. The event was help as a fundraiser for the refurbishment of the Chapel and almost £150 was raised towards our cause.
