Song recital will boost repairs fund for St Michael’s Church in Lewes

Lewes tenor Tim Wilcox will give a recital of songs by Purcell, Schumann and Finzi on Sunday (September 8) at St Michael’s Church, High Street, Lewes, at 3pm.

The programme will include an extract from Finzi’s Dies Natalis, and Purcell’s wonderfully hypnotic Evening Hymn, as well as a rarity, Schumann’s Requiem, written in honour of his friend the poet Nikolaus Lenau. Tim will be accompanied by Nicholas Houghton on piano.

Tim has appeared as a soloist with numerous local choirs and recently completed a Diploma in Performance at Birkbeck College, University of London.

Admission to the recital is free and there will be a retiring collection in aid of church repairs.
