Songs for a Saint at St Edward’s

Where

St Edward's Church
High Street, Clifford, North Yorkshire, LS23 6HJ

2024 will see the singers travel to pastures new for their first of two spring concerts.  Chordiality will introduce their new repertoire with a fundraiser at St Edward’s Church in Clifford, North Yorkshire.

The Church of St Edward, King and Confessor opened in 1848 and is an outstanding landmark in the village.  A grade II listed building with Romanesque architecture and detailing throughout, the church is well worth a visit in its own right.  Naturally, an added attraction will be the performance of the choir.

A unique attraction is that the church is home to the remains of the child martyr St Domitia the Second.  The remains, originally from the Catacombs of Rome, were presented to local landowner Sir Edward Vavasour by Pope Gregory XVI and situated under the high altar during the church’s construction.

At the Sunday afternoon concert, St Edward’s will ring to a performance of the choir’s new 2024 programme with works from Joseph Haydn, Carl Orff’s celebrated Carmina Burana, and Messrs Rodgers and Hammerstein will also be making an appearance.
