Our next concert, 24 March in St Chad’s Cathedral, Birmingham
Archbishop Bernard Longley will be our guest reader of John Donne’s Holy Sonnets
The Archbishop is himself something of a musician, having trained at The Manchester School of Music, and in recent years has regularly come to our concerts so we’re delighted that he will be taking part in this lovely programme of Tudor music and poetry.

"I am originally from Scunthorpe but have lived in the Black Country for over 30 years. Having just retired from my career as a senior NHS manager I now have time for more music and am delighted to have been accepted by the Birmingham Bach Choir. Musically, my main passion is the flute which I play in the Birmingham Philharmonic and Wolverhampton Symphony Orchestras but I have sung all my life in a variety of choirs including Wolverhampton Chamber Choir. Music also features large in our family life; my husband Peter Morris is Director of Music at St. Peter’s Collegiate Church Wolverhampton (although retiring after Easter) as well as conductor of Wolverhampton Symphony Orchestra and Walsall Borough Organist."
