Manchester Chorale strengthens its ties with Cawthorne with a May concert

A musical history going back many years will be strengthened with the arrival of the Manchester Chorale in Cawthorne next month.

It is performing a concert of choral music at All Saints' Parish Church on Saturday, May 11 at 7.30pm, with composers featured representing over 500 years of music from Tallis and Monteverdi to Yorkshrire's own Kate Rusby.

The Manchester Chorale is a mixed-voice choir of around 50 singers under the direction of Jill Henderson-Wild, whose father brought his international touring choir Sine Nomine to Cawthorne for many years.

This year's concert is entitled How Can I Keep From Singing and promises music to suit all tastes.

Organiser John Walker said: "They last visited Cawthorne in May 2017 when they gave an outstanding performance.

"We are extremely fortunate to have Jill's connection with Cawthorne - she spent much of her childhood here and has close ties to the village.

"May of us are looking forward with eager anticipation to what I know will be an evening not to be missed."

Tickets are available from Cawthorne Post Office and Cawthorne village store, on the door, or can be reserved by phoning 01226 790530
