PUBLISHED: 21:02 11 July 2013 | UPDATED: 22:42 13 July 2013

HERTFORDSHIRE Chorus’ summer concert will take place in Potters Bar this weekend.

St Mary’s Church is the venue for the choir’s latest concert featuring music from across 400 years, from the reigns of both Queen Elizabeths.

Benjamin Britten’s Hymn to Saint Cecilia, patron saint of musicians, celebrates this great British composer in his centenary year.

There are pieces by Will Todd, Orlando Gough, James McCarthy and Roland Perrin, composers who are well known to Hertfordshire Chorus audiences.

Saturday’s concert also includes Tudor anthems by Byrd, Tallis and Tomkins, ensuring a real ‘summer miscellany’ of music.

The choir is conducted, as always, by David Temple. The concert starts at 7.30pm and tickets cost £15 and £12, concessions £5.

Tickets are available from www.hertfordshirechorus.org.uk or call 0870 458 0445.
