“COME and sing Victorian music” is the invitation from song leaders who have been running regular community singing sessions in Haworth.

St Michael’s Church at the top of Main Street will host the session on Saturday September 21 from 9.45am to 4.45pm.

A spokesman said: “A beautiful Victorian church in a glorious village steeped in history, what better way to spend our final singday of 2019?

“A day singing some of the very fine Victorian anthems by Parry, Elgar, Goss and Stainer, and focusing on Parry’s Blest Pair of Sirens and others led by Tim Knight.

“This will be a fun workshop day culminating in and informal performance at teatime. Plenty of time for lunch and tea in the array of cafes and plenty of time to visit the gift shops.”

Born in Northallerton, Tim became a chorister in York Minster Choir under Dr Francis Jackson, with the daily round of choral services exposing him to an immense and diverse repertoire.

Tim also studied choral conducting with John Coates and, at the age of 8, composed his first piece of music, a grace for his school which subsequently became used regularly.
