    Come and sing a Patchwork Mass with Tamesis Chamber Choir!
    Saturday 14th March, Henley-on-Thames
    St Mary’s Church, Henley-on-Thames, RG9 2AU (use public car parks or come by train or bus)
    Registration at 10:30am, concert performance at 7:00pm
    By popular demand, we’re delighted to follow up on the sell-out Patchwork Requiem of 2018 with a Patchwork Mass for 2020. We’re moving to the larger venue of St Mary’s Church, which has good facilities and is in the centre of Henley.
    Variety is the spice of a musical life - why settle for just one choral Mass when you can enjoy a taste of many?

    Tamesis Chamber Choir and award-winning musical director Louise Rapple Moore invite you to join us a for an entertaining and uplifting day of singing a Mass with a difference! Each movement comes from a different, well-loved Mass, piecing together a vibrant and exciting programme of beautiful choral music embracing Byrd, Rossini, Puccini, Mozart, Haydn, Rutter, Jenkins and Gjeilo. 
    Whatever you love, we think we’ve got it covered… and you may even come away with new favourites to cherish! 
    We’re also privileged to welcome Simon Dinsdale, our accompanying organist and Julie Kench, our soprano soloist.

    Come and sing - or come and listen!

    Whether you know the music already or want to try out something new to you, we welcome singers on every voice part to come and sing with us. Build your knowledge and confidence with members of Tamesis Chamber Choir alongside to support you, or lend your vocal expertise to anchor the performance. 

    Louise will lead a lively and relaxed daytime rehearsal with plenty of breaks (refreshments and cakes will be laid on throughout the day) and we’ll perform our completed patchwork in the evening. You’ll even get a well-earned breather, as Tamesis Chamber Choir will perform some bonus movements alone.

    A word to the wise!
    We love to welcome as many singers as possible, but there is a physical limit to numbers. Last time, we sold out of singer tickets two weeks before the event, for all voice parts. We recommend that you book online now to be sure of a place. You’ll get an immediate receipt: more information about the day will follow by email at the beginning of March.
    There’s a limited amount of disabled parking at the church. If you need a space reserving or have any questions about venue accessibility, please get in touch directly.
