Bassingham Choir are a well established and experienced choir of up to 50 mixed voices led by their musical director, Martyn Taylor and accompanied by Ed Wellman of Lincoln University.
For the last 3 years they have been performing ‘Lost Voices‘ a programme of tunes from the trenches and other music such as Jerusalem, Mozart’s Ave Verum, In Flanders Fields, interspersed with readings written by soldiers during WW1.
It is a very poignant and moving concert lasting 1hr 10 minutes.
This has been very well received all over Lincolnshire, culminating in an invitation to perform in the Cathedral Chapter house last November 11th.
As it is the Centenary of the ending of the First World War this year, they are looking for venues to perform this work. They are happy to travel within a reasonable distance.
Although it is particularly pertinent to November, they can sing this programme any time.
The choir do not charge and bring their own Clavinova, all they need are chairs and an electric socket.
