Norwich choir Sine Nomine church performance

St Mary Margaret SprowstonSine Nomine Choir performed a concert of light choral music, sacred and secular, entitled “Music for a Summer Evening” at the parish church of St Mary & St Margaret, Sprowston on Saturday 21st June. 

Under the baton of their director Ben Miller the choir performed music from the 16th century to the present day, featuring English composers Morley, Tomkins, Stanford, Holst, Elgar and John Rutter together with a six-part anthem by Brahms and a set of Hungarian Folk songs by Kodaly. 

Sine Nomine is based in Norwich and was started some 30 years ago by the well-known Norfolk composer Ron Watson. Ben has been their director for the past four years and is always on the look-out for new members;  email sine_nomine@hotmail.co.uk  for more information. 

In addition to the choral works, Ben played on the delightful 1850 chamber organ two short Choral Preludes and a work by the French composer Vierne. 

It is hoped that in part the monies raised will go towards events planned by the new Friends of Saint Mary and St Margaret Church which is in the early stages of if its existence.
