WNTV: Ceilidh Fund-raiser for Breast Cancer
A well attended Ceilidh night was held at Broome Farm,
Peterstow on the evening of Saturday 29th April, in order
to help four ladies get to Iceland, where they will do
a marathon walk to raise funds for breast cancer. The
Ceilidh evening was a great success, with music provided
by local band 'Banshee', who soon had everybody dancing.
There was some fantastic food provided, a tombola was
held and there was a great quantity of Broome Farm cider
and perry available.
In order to take part in the Icelandic walk, organizer
Cindy Smith and her friends needed to raise a minimum
of £500 each.
Up until Saturday they had already exceeded this amount
having already raised approximately £2,500 by holding
events such as a 'Ladies only' dinner at the Cider Press
Restaurant at Broome Farm, a yoga day, a disco, a quiz
night and money from non uniform days held at a school
in Bedfordshire, where one of the four participants, Steph
Collins lives. A practise Moon Walk will be held in Hyde
Park in the near future.
anybody would like to contribute further to this worthy
cause, please contact Cindy Smith either by telephoning

Music for the Rising of the Sun King
Glorious music from seventeenth-century France that is
rarely heard in live performance in this country will
be echoing in the sumptuous neo-Italianate building of
Hoarwithy Church on Saturday 6 May.
Ebor Singers are a are a vocal ensemble specializing in
17th century French sacred music. The choir is based in
York, and are visiting the area for an evening concert
on Saturday 6 May to join their artistic director, Doctor
Paul Gameson, who is giving a workshop with the Border
Marches Early Music Forum during the day. On Saturday
they will be performing music for French kings, including
sacred music by the innovative but overlooked early seventeenth-century
composer Guillaume Bouzignac, an enfant terrible who preferred
the more daring modern Italianate madrigal style to the
conservative Renaissance writing: in particular the singers
will be focussing on his dramatic dialogues that bring
the stories of the Nativity and the Passion vividly to
life. Alongside this will be airs de cours and chansons,
including Clement Jannequin's Chanson des Oiseaux, where
the singers have an opportunity to make bird sounds!
music of seventeenth-century France was the focus of Paul's
doctorate at York University, which is where the choir
were formed in 1996. Although Paul now lives in York,
he has many associations with the area: he lived in Malvern
and has sung in Hereford Cathedral Choir. Now many of
the choir's members are professional soloists in their
own right. The choir's performance has been praised as
'a concert of real imagination' (The Church Times), 'a
tasty evening' (Yorkshire Evening Press), 'Sheer perfection'
(Yorkshire Post), and 'an imaginative, well-researched
presentation. And a robust, effective choir: I'd be happy
to hear them any day, in early music, late music, even
something in the middle' (The Times).
