Concert

Featuring the music of local composers, Bedford Gallery Quire presents a concert of music both sacred and secular, from the hymns and anthems heard in the area in the early nineteenth century to the four-part songs of the catch and glee clubs of the time. Using original instruments, and in period dress, Bedford Gallery Quire offers a glimpse into a rural Cambridgeshire past.
