Chichester musician George Haynes will be conducting his ensemble of eight professional singers, the South Downs Soloists, in a concert of unaccompanied music at St Mary’s Church Easebourne on April 15, the Saturday after Easter.

The programme is specially chosen by George to celebrate Eastertide. They will sing several pieces by the late 16th century Spanish composer Tomás Luis de Victoria, three motets by the Anglo-Irish composer Charles Villiers Stanford plus music by other later Renaissance and 20th century composers.

George is a lay vicar in the choir of Chichester Cathedral. He pursues a varied career as a countertenor, conductor, composer and accompanist. George conducts the choral society Cantemus in Havant which recently performed a successful concert of music by Haydn and Mozart. George is also accompanist for the Fernhurst Choral Society and has performed with them professionally as both soloist and pianist.
