The HUMS Classical Ensemble will be giving a concert at St. Peter’s Church, Old Hurst on Saturday 3rd July starting at 18:00. Entrance is free but there will be a retiring collection to help raise some funds for the PCC and say thank-you for allowing us to use the church in March for recording purposes.

The ensemble will be playing music from their recently released CD (see related article).

This isn’t a crack team of jewels thieves who broke in to discover that someone had left a pile of classical guitars but rather the guitar ensemble from the Huntingdonshire Music School.

This was at the end of a long – nearly 5 hour – recording session in Old Hurst at St. Peter’s Church.

The classical guitar ensemble from the Huntingdonshire Music School spent nearly 5 hours recording in Old Hurst at St. Peter’s Church one weekend in March. There’s not much you can do in gloves! Anyway the end result was worth it and we now have a CD for sale (£5) with the proceeds going towards HUMSA and therefore future music-making at the music school.

The tracks include:

        • Boureé (Mozart arr K. Marx)
        • The Olive Grove – 1) Il Pensieroso 2) L’allegro (Peter Nuttall)
        • Contradanza (Ian Gammie)
        • Jeux Interdits (Narcisio Yepes arr. Remi Laredo)
        • Beginners’ Rag (Susan Sharp)
        • Ashokan Farewell (Trad.)
        • Arena y Sol (Ian Gammie)
        • Sarabande Varieé (G.F. Handel)
        • Jamaica Farewell (Trad.)

A sample of the tracks from the CD can be heard on the Music Alley site (used to be the Podcast Music Network).
