Fakenham Choral Society invites you to Come & Sing John Rutter's Feel the Spirit.

Feel the Spirit is an exuberant cycle of spirituals with very familiar tunes but set by John Rutter in a variety of ways for choir and mezzo-soprano soloist. It includes deeply moving versions of ‘Steal Away’ and ‘Deep River’ and finishes with the wonderfully uplifting ‘When the Saints Go Marching In’.


The day will be led by Fakenham Choral Society’s new Musical Director, Mark Jones. As a former Head of Music at Gresham's School and of Gresham's Choral Society he will be a familiar face to many local singers. 

Singers' and audience donations will go to The Norfolk Hospice.

The registration fee for the day is £15 or £5 for students under 21. Scores will be available to borrow.

The deadline for registrations is Monday 11 February 2019.

  • Registration/ coffee: from 9.45am
