Choral society has variety of religious songs at concert

Seaford Choral Society offer their spring concert at St Leonard’s Church, Church Street, Seaford on Saturday, April 27 at 7.30pm.

The programme includes Missa Brevis Sancti Joannis De Deo (Little Organ Mass) by Franz Joseph Haydn (1732-1809).

Spokesman Peter Woodman said: “Composed in 1775 for the Barmherzige Bruder (Order of the Brothers of Mercy) whose patron saint was John of God, in what is now Eisenstadt Austria, this is a short mass, and its alternative title (Kleine Orgelmesse), derives from the extensive solo organ part in the Benediction.” The programme includes Felix Mendelssohn’s Hear My Prayer and John Rutter’s Requiem.

Tickets at £10 are available from Newberry Tully Estate Agents, Church Street, Seaford, or contact the secretary on 01323 492791. See also www.seaford-choral-society.com.
