    We're doing a series of concerts in and around around Cambridgeshire Churches throughout the year. We started the series in September last year and have so far done the concert in Isleham, Hollywell, Yaxley, Little Downham, and last Saturday, Kimbolton Churches. Future concerts (which are all listed in the tMP calender and on 4br) include Glatton, Stilton, Wisbech, Buckden, Over, Godmanchester, and St Ives Churches. The program we've played for the series so far is:

    1. Beatrice & Benedict - Hector Berlioz (1803-1869): arr Keith Wilkinson

    2. Alleluia - Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756-1791): arr Harry Mortimer
    Cornet soloist: Richard Hull

    3. Labour & Love - Percy Fletcher (1879-1932):

    4. Midnight Euphonium - Goff Richards: (b.1944)
    Euphonium soloist: Cliff Wilkinson

    5. A Moorside Suite - Gustav Holst: (1874-1934)
    1) Scherzo 2) Nocturne 3) March


    1. Fantasy on British Sea Songs - Gordon Langford (b.1930)

    2. Intermezzo from Cavalleria Rusticana - Pietro Mascagni (1863- 1945) arr Gordon Langford
    Cornet soloist: Richard Hull

    3. Elegy from the Downland Suite - John Ireland: (1879-1962)

    4. Variations on Laudate Dominum - Edward Gregson: (b.1945) Introduction, Five Variations and Theme and Finale

    For the future concerts, there is (hopefully!) 1 change in the program. I will be playing 'On with the Motley' in place of 'Intermezzo from Cavalleria Rusticana'
