A Weekend of ‘Messiah’ at St Peter’s

Alleluia – Thank you!

65 singers from choirs across Leicester and Leicestershire, the Knighton Chamber Orchestra and four soloists, former Leicester University students, were conducted by Dr. Paul Jenkins. The audience in the almost full church were mesmerised by the beauty and volume of the music which resonated outside to nearby residents.

The performance completes the National Lottery Heritage Activities for the grant work to repair the roofs as well as raising £3,252.85 and after expenses, £1,403.64 for St. Peter’s (much better than William Hanbury did—he couldn’t afford to pay the orchestra!) 

Thanks to all who gave their support especially the volunteers from the PCC for preparing the church and at the concert, and Roz Folwell for her leadership and commitment to the event.

Barry Barnes, Secretary to the PCC of Church Langton.
