Visit to the Sepulchre


Newbury Chamber Choir will be starting the Easter period with a Palm Sunday performance of Visit to the Sepulchre, an arrangement of one of the oldest known musical dramas.  Edward Lambert has adapted the plainsong melodies of the twelfth century Visitatio Sepulchri to create an arrangement for contemporary choral performance. 

In this short piece the music is simple, uplifting and meditative as it tells the story of the disappearance of Christ's body from the tomb.  It has moving and dramatic moments too, as in the famous scene where the Three Marys recognise the Gardener as their risen Saviour. 

Come along and see the Easter story unfold.

until 11pm

For more than 15 years we have been encouraging musicians of all ages and abilities to get up and play in a friendly atmosphere. We are in a great room with a stage, drums, lights, microphones, everything including a fantastic bar and we ask only £2 as a contribution to costs.

Come along and bring your instrument and have a blow. Feeling uncertain? Then leave it in the car but you’ll want to get it out later!! Singers are also welcome. We will pick a few open numbers for everyone to try and also arrange mini sets for others. Don't forget that there is a great bar with good beer!
