AN Andover choir will be returning to perform in a church for its first concert of the year.

The Andover Chamber Choir will return to St Mary's Church, in Church Lane, on Saturday, April 13 at 7.30pm for an Easter concert. 

Andrew Wyndham, musical director, said: ‘’We will be singing Faure’s beautiful and ever popular Requiem. Completed in 1890, Faure’s setting has been a favourite with choirs and audiences ever since.’’

The first half of the concert is a ‘Patchwork Mass’ which will be made up of contrasting settings from different composers including Byrd, Palestrina and Bruckner.
