Organisers of a concert in Carbrooke church, near Watton, are expecting a sellout night when the Aurelian Ensemble puts on a performance on September 18.

The ensemble was founded in l971 and has always had a policy to recruit the best freelance players available in London and Essex.

Consequently, it has won critical acclaim and has become one of the most sought-after orchestras in the London area.

At Carbrooke, the concert will be directed by Stephen King, who is organist at Brentwood Cathedral.He has made appearances at Antwerp Cathedral and St Hedwig's Cathedral in Berlin, and has also played at Notre Dame in Paris. He also has links with Norfolk, having played at Cromer church many times.

On this occasion he will perform on the harpsichord and joining his colleagues to play music by JS Bach, Holst, Mozart, Warlock and Rutter.

This is a wonderful opportunity to listen to very talented musicians in the lovely setting of a country church, and at the same time help raise funds for the church, which needs to be rewired for its electricity.
