Spirituals, Psalms and Songbirds – Spring Concert
The Sheldon Singers returned to St Paul’s Church Honiton on Saturday with a varied programme tied together with unifying motifs. The first part of the evening consisted of a selection of unaccompanied songs for the choir, on the theme of birdsong, ranging from a 15th century nonsense song (in French!), via madrigals, to the more familiar Cornish folk song which most people know as “Down in those valleys below”, arranged for solo baritone – Peter Smith from the Choir - and chorus.
On Christmas Night
On Saturday 20th December Honiton’s Sheldon Singers performed their Christmas Concert at The Beehive Centre for the first time. The format was rather different from their usual Christmas offering in that appropriate readings were inserted into the programme, which made the evening even more enjoyable.
