In May 2015, we invited our patrons to an informal concert with tea at the Dacre Hall, Lanercost, to thank them for their continued support.

On Good Friday 2015 we provided music and readings for an hour of devotion and reflection, at Lanercost Priory.

Our 2015 Easter concert featured 2 modern settings of the text "Ubi Caritas" (Where there is Love), along with Purcell's Music for the Funeral of Queen Mary, and a range of Passiontide works from the 16th and 17th centuries.

Our 2014 Christmas concert, "There is No Rose", took its title from a medieval carol in praise of the Virgin Mary, and was held on Sunday 14th December at 3 pm at Lanercost Priory.  We performed a setting of the carol by the contemporary composer John Joubert, alongside a wide range of Christmas music from across the European continent, from the 16th century onwards.  The concert also included works by Tomas Luis Victoria, Fransisco Guerrero, Jacob Handl, Peter Tchaikovsky, Hector Berlioz and Arvo Pärt.

Our 2014 Summer concerts provided a feast of music all on the theme of love with love music from the 15th to the 21st centuries, including works by William Bryd (1540-1623), John Downland (1563-1626),  Henry Purcell (1659-1695), Ralph Vaughan Williams (1872-1958), Gustav Holst (1874-1934) and others.  The concert also featured the  "The Unfaithful Lover" Folk Suite by Matyas Seiber (1905-1960), as well as solo, duet, trio and consort performances.  The concerts were on Friday 4th July 2014 at Brampton Methodist Church, repeated on Sunday 6th July at 7.30 at the wonderful St Wilfrid's Chapel, Brougham.
