Copies will be £5 and available to purchase at rehearsal 29th January.
Also, the registration form for the workshop on Belshazzar’s Feast on Saturday 10th March is now available here, if you want to pass it on to singing friends. You do not need to complete the form – just confirm attendance when you register on Monday.
