Stabat Mater Beacon Community Choir Concert – Cancelled

To mark the 800th anniversary of St Mary the Virgin, Ivinghoe, the Beacon Community Choir will be performing Stabat Mater by the popular and engaging Welsh composer of ‘Adiemus’, Karl Jenkins, on Good Friday 2020.  Based on the 13th century poem, the title is an abbreviation of the first line, ‘Stabat Mater Dolorosa – the sorrowful mother was standing …’.  This text, one of the most powerful and immediate of medieval poems, meditates on the suffering of Mary, Jesus Christ’s mother, during his crucifixion.  Jenkins has taken this ancient text and interweaves it with modern text settings in English, Greek, Hebrew, Arabic and Aramaic, for soloist, choir and organ.

Full of melodious and inspiring music, this moving and dramatic work expresses the pain at the heart of the Easter story.

Friday 10 April 2020 at 6.30pm

Rennie Grove Santa Float

Santa Claus is coming to town! Yes, it’s almost that time of year again for ol’ St Nic tosanta sleigh

take to the streets to bring festive cheer to everyone he meets.

The good news is that enough local volunteers have come forward to help the float so Father Christmas will be coming to Pitstone for 2 evenings on 16th (Castlemead) and 17th December (Pitstone). He’ll be seen for approx 2 hours each time, starting at about 5.45pm, so make sure you wrap up and come wave Santa through the town.

You can find a list of the dates and times, plus the route maps* of Santa’s Float by clicking this link:  https://www.renniegrove.org/whats-on/detail/santa-float

*Please note that routes could be subject to change slightly depending on the driver.

These are lovely events for the children, and important fundraising events for the local hospice, so do support the donation collection, if you are able.
