Book a date to come and sing some great Handellian music in the 260th year since his death, which will include the favourite 'Zadock the Priest', but also the largely neglected 'Foundling Hospital Anthem' (which contains the Halleluia Chorus). There will also be some other Oratorio extracts and the day will conclude with a short performance of music from the day which will be open to the public.
Come and Sing Handel in Settle, the Gateway to the Dales!
The day will be led by Tim Knight, the Award-winning Yorkshire Composer and Conductor (find out more about Tim at www.timknightmusic.com), and the event takes place in the lovely market town of Settle, which is the Gateway to the Dales, and full of gift shops, cafes, a rather fine fish and chip shop and within a short driving distance a fine waterside retail outlet.
Settle is easily accessible by road (off the A65) and there is ample car parking opposite the church, or you can take the picturesque Settle to Carlisle line and arrive by train, with the church being approximately a 10minute walk from the station.
