Music for Unaccompanied Voices

St Jamesís Church, Dursley

Saturday 28 June 2008

In this concert, the Cappella Singers lived up to their name by presenting an evening of 'a cappella' pieces for up to eight voice parts.

The programme (see below) spanned the second half of the 19th century and the first half of the 20th century, and covered both religious and secular texts.
