Spring Concert 2024

On Saturday April 27th in St Andrew’s Church, Dent, The Dentdale Choir is presenting an exciting new programme of Baroque masterpieces.  

Along with the iconic, uplifting and well-loved Gloria by Antonio Vivaldi, the choir is going back to 17th century England to our finest composer Henry Purcell.  Like Mozart, Purcell lived a prolific life, only to die in his mid 30s. In his short life, he too wrote a huge volume of high quality music. The Dentdale Choir has prepared a selection of his music, both sacred and profane, which will be interspersed with some of his finest instrumental music played by Julian Cann and his quartet with John Seymour at the harpsichord. 

The choir is led this year by Nicholas Hurndall Smith. 


In addition, we will hear our much loved local multi-instrumentalist Roger Bush on the organ, as well as an ensemble drawn from the choir. At last year's concert (led by the choir's then conductor, Jen Hartley) the ensemble sang three short madrigals. This time, now formally named "Folli Contorti" and led by non-choir member Caroline Page, they’ll sing a selection of ancient and modern pieces. 

We think that the whole concert is guaranteed to lift the spirits and stir emotions. 

The concert starts at 7.30pm.
