After the huge success of their December Concert in the Corn Hall, the Burgate Singers move to Burgate Church for their Spring Concert, where they will perform Sergei Rachmaninovís Vespers. The All Night Vigil Ė often described as his greatest musical achievement, it was one of his own favourite compositions. The other work is Edward Elgarís thrilling setting, for contralto soloist and choir, of Alfred oíShaughnessyís poem The Music Makers.
