The title may be an aria from Handel’s Messiah but this concert celebrates the traditions of the British brass band. The programme includes Leroy Anderson’s Bugler’s Holiday, Henry Purcell’s Trumpet Voluntary, and virtuoso pieces like Napoli and Carnival of Venice.

Enjoy love duets from Puccini’s Tosca and Madam Butterfly, solos from Franz Lehar’s The Merry Widow and Rodgers & Hammerstein’s South Pacific. This is a delightful programme with more than a hint of Andrea Bocelli and Katherine Jenkins.

With "Downton Abbey" in its final season we are inspired to celebrate the music of the Victorian and Edwardian Eras. In reality it was the hey-day of the musical genre known as “palm court”. It was also the period of that other TV series "Upstairs, Downstairs" and the film "Gosforth Park." The programme will include drawing room ballads, songs from light opera and operetta and a sing-a-long from the British Music Hall.
