The 'Songs of Praise' concert, a joint venture between Brackley & District Band and St Peter’s Church, took place on Sunday 27 March 2022. It was very much enjoyed and appreciated by nearly 100 attendees, and both groups benefitted from the event.
A splendid afternoon tea was provided by ladies from the church, whom we thank (you know who you are, ladies) and special thanks must go also to Beverly Bigmore who prepared all the artwork, printed the programmes and displayed the words to the hymns.
The band combined a repertoire of instrumental offerings, all with a “song” theme of sorts, with nine very well-known and well-loved hymns, and those present raised the roof on more than one occasion during the afternoon, ending proceedings with the wonderful “Jerusalem”.
Brackley & District Band are always grateful for the wonderful welcome that they get at St Peter’s. It is a magnificent venue for a performance with tremendous acoustics.
The afternoon left those who attended wanting more and asking “when can we do this again?” Hopefully, another joint event can be organised in due course; watch this space! We would also like to express our thanks to all those who attended.
