Knutsford Guardian: The Border Singers ensure a climatic end for Tabley Summer Concerts The Border Singers ensure a climatic end for Tabley Summer Concerts

THE last of the Friends of Tabley Summer Concerts will take place on July 15, with a celebration of song from the Border Singers.

More used to performing in the bleak midwinter at Tabley for the annual sell-out Carol Concert, The Border Singers are now looking forward to visiting on a warm summer’s evening.

It is the first time the group have performed in the house and their programme will feature music from the time of Elizabeth II and the Jacobean era.

The concert will also feature a viol consort to accompany some of the pieces.

Items will include the madrigals from the set known as The Triumphs of Oriana, 17th century anthems and Britten’s Dances from Gloriana. Songs will be interspersed with reading from The Tabley House Collection’s rich literary archives, including poems penned by members of the Leicester family.

The concert will begin at 7.30pm. Tickets cost £20 and strawberries and bubbly will be served on the night. To book tickets, call Anna Smyth on 01565 651979 or email anna.smyth6@gmail.com
