The Poppy Red Remembrance Concert

Tapestry joined forces with Brampton and Wyton Military Wives Choir for a very special remembrance concert on 3rd November in St Margaret’s Church, Hemingford Abbots. The audience heard a wonderfully eclectic selection of music, both sacred and secular, which reached over a period of 500 years. The highlights including a setting of Bridge of Troubled Water, including a solo from tenor Tony Humes and a choral setting of Elgar’s famous Nimrod. The evening finished with a very appropriate joint item - a new adaptation of ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’ in which the song is interwoven with the tune from Beethoven’s Sonata Pathetique. This was written for the choirs by Jeremy, Tapestry’s own Musical Director.

Donations from the audience raised £470 to be shared between the SSAFA charity and St Margaret’s Church fund. Rumour has it that the concert was so successful, there may be a repeat some time next year!
