Classical trio at Trunch church concert

PUBLISHED: 16:47 02 April 2014 | UPDATED: 16:47 02 April 2014

A trio of young musicians will be performing English and Italian Baroque music for a fund-raising concert.

Organist and leader of the Cantamus Community Choir David Ballard; soprano Verity Ransom; and trumpet player Matthew Martin will be performing at St Botolph’s Church in Trunch on Saturday April 5 at 7.30pm.

All three musicians are graduates of the University of East Anglia and the concert will feature the recently renovated historic 1808 William Gray organ.

The concert will include compositions from Purcell, Corelli, Byrd, Stanley and Pergolesi.

The programme is to include the Trumpet Tune and Sonata by Purcell; excerpts from Pergolesi’s Stabat Mater; Bach’s transcription for organ BWV 593 of a Vivaldi violin concerto; and voluntaries by the blind organist John Stanley, perfectly suited to the Trunch organ.

Admission is by programme at the door, £9 (£7 concessions).

Proceeds from night will go towards the ongoing restoration and maintenance of St Botolph’s Church, which dates back to the medieval period.
