The programme is of British music starting with Benjamin Britten’s stirring arrangement of The National Anthem. 
The works that follow are by some of our most illustrious composers; Sir Edward Elgar, Hubert Parry and Ralph Vaughan Williams whose Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis is preceded by the choir singing Tallis’s arrangement of Psalm 2 which is the theme used for this work.
Some of the items have particular Royal connections having been sung at Coronations including 1953 and other special occasions. The programme is a very appropriate contribution to Her Majesty The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations. 

Platinum Jubilee Facelift

The Society is working to deliver a Facelift for Windsor and Eton for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.   All this has happened at speed, given that the Launch was on 13th September. 

  • Would members who have ‘green fingers’  indicate if they are willing to help clear Heritage sites and plant bulbs.
  • Would members be willing to sponsor plants for next year to bring some of our Heritage gardens back to how they used to look?
  • We also need willing people to visit businesses and distribute leaflets in the New Year.

Please complete the following form, and return it to    margaret-lenton@btconnect.com
