As a result of the current emergency measures being taken to slow the spread of the Covid-19 virus, the committee has regretfully taken the decision to postpone the performance of St Matthew Passion due to take place on 26 April 2020 until the corresponding date in April 2022. In the hope that the situation will have improved by August, when rehearsals are due to start for the December performance, the plan remains to hold our next concert on Sunday 6 December, performing the Bruckner Mass in E minor and Bruckner motets - this will be kept under review.
