Come to Bradford Festival Choral Society’s wonderful concert, A Night at the Opera, on Saturday, May 13th, 7.30 pm at All Saints’ Parish Church, Bingley, BD16 2RH. We’re singing all your favourite opera choruses and a couple of lovely less familiar ones, and the fabulous soloists will be singing some of the best-loved arias. If you came to the Mozart Requiem and Haydn Nelson Mass you’ll know how good the choir is these days, and if you didn’t, come and find out. There will be wine, soft drinks and extra special nibbles (some home made) in the interval.

compassion, contemplating Christ’s mother grieving with her son? Pro peccatis suae
gentis vidit Jesum in tormentis et flagellis subitum For the sins o…
