Wingrave Singers

On Saturday evening 22nd June 2013, the fine acoustics of Aylesbury's Methodist Church resounded to the thrilling ethereal singing of the Wingrave Singers; the outstanding local village choir, who with their reputation for excellence, are frequently called upon to sing in many of Britain's great cathedrals.

Under the direction of their professional Music Director, Colin Spinks, the twenty strong choir beautifully presented a varied selection of anthems by composers ranging from Palestrina to Parry, depicting 'Visions of Eternity'.

Of particular celestial delight was a new composition by the award-winning British Composer, Alexander Campkin, 'I saw eternity' sung unaccompanied by three of the choir's ladies, high up from the back of the church gallery. The programme also included virtuoso organ solos both by Colin and the accompanist, Richard Carr.

This concert was given in aid of the Karibuni Trust charity which raises funds to provide schools and education for street children in Kenya.
