Ancient Music In Long Eaton
The renowned Erewash early music consort Aitone is soon to perform ancient sacred music in Long Eaton.
Featuring renaissance and baroque music for Holy Week, the concert begins at 7.30pm on Palm Sunday, 20th March, at St Francis Church on Tamworth Road.
Admission is free, and a collection will be shared between the group and the Retired Priests Appeal, which is trying to build up a fund to support retired clergy who find themselves in financial difficulty.
Fr Martin Sylvester, parish priest of St Francis parish in Long Eaton, said, "Everyone who's been to one of Aitone's Holy Week concerts has come away marvelling at the richness of the early music repertoire for this season, and impressed by the group's musicianship. Some visitors who'd never heard early music before were surprised by its power to move their hearts, and the brief introductions the group give to the pieces makes the night an education as well as an entertaining and spiritually uplifting musical treat."
