For the Beauty of the Earth


The Cromwell Singers are once again hosting a fund-raising concert, this time in aid of Newbury Cancer Care / The Rainbow Rooms at West Berks Hospital.

The Choir is well regarded locally and is led by Trevor Defferd, a Musical Director of enormous experience.  Our Musical Accompanist will be Jevan Johnson Booth, again a hugely experienced musician, and we will likely host  Guest Singer too.

Tickets are £10.00 to include refreshments, with under-18's free.  There will a raffle and the entire net proceeds of this and ticket sales will be donated to this most worthy of causes.  Tickets are available on the door or via email at thecromwellsingers@gmail.com - we hope too to be able to take cardless payments.

George Gillow

organ recital


Although we have two magnificent organs in the Abbey Church which are used regularly in our services, it's many years since we had a dedicated organ recital. 

I'm very pleased to tell you that we will be making this omission right at 4 pm on Sunday 10 July when George Gillow will be giving  an organ recital including music by Bach, Mozart and Duruflé on both organs.

George has just finished studying Music at Cambridge where he was Senior Organ Scholar at Clare College. He has given recitals at various Cambridge colleges and elsewhere and he is looking forward to playing for us here at Douai.

Free admission but there will be a retiring collection for expenses.

with best wishes
