Beacon Community Choir Summer Concerts 17 & 18 June 2023



For our summer concert, the Beacon

Community Choir will perform two joyful works, perfect entertainment for a summer’s evening.

Captain Noah and his floating zoo

Captain Noah and his floating zoo is the first collaboration of Michael Flanders (of Flanders and Swan) and Joseph Horovitz in 1970.  It is a lighthearted look at the old testament story and has been popular with adults and children since its creation. It has been performed in many different versions and adaptations, most notably by The Kings Singers. Although originally intended to be sung in schools, in unison or two parts, our version has been prepared by the composer for mixed chorus. The musical style of the cantata is unashamedly eclectic and exploits all well-known types of popular music to tell this ever-green story in a tuneful and amusing way.

Feel the Spirit

Feel the Spirit, written in 2016, is a cycle of seven familiar spirituals expertly arranged by John Rutter. These vivid and expressive arrangements can be performed individually, or as a complete cycle that showcases the rich heritage of the spiritual. The work brings new life to such well-loved titles as Steal Away,

I Got A Robe, and When The Saints Go Marching In and is designed to raise your

spirits and set your toes tapping.

Venue is: St. Mary’s Church, Ivinghoe. Tickets are: £12.50

Dates and times: Saturday 17th June at 7pm and Sunday 18th June at 4pm.
