St Barnabas Church, Mt Eden

The title of this concert says it all. From our wide repertoire, we have selected songs about rivers and about peace. We open with a stirring Latin piece celebrating faith and music, by famous Welsh composer, Sir Karl Jenkins, and will conclude with an equally stirring Welsh anthem called Y Tangnefeddwyr. This is translated as The Peacemakers and is fitting this June, as precisely 100 years ago some of our WW1 soldiers were still awaiting repatriation to NZ. We have invited instrumentalists to join us and they provide a special feature as well as playing a delightful supporting obligato accompaniment for some favourite songs.

Along with a roaring fire in the lounge we want to provide a pleasurable afternoon of music for this, our 8th winter concert in the lovely historic church of St Barnabas. We will also offer afternoon tea in the lounge post-concert for a gold coin donation.
