May Morning Madrigals

Witchert Chorale atop Long Crendon Church Tower

Monday morning 1st May saw members of the Haddenham-based Witchert Chorale ascend the very tricky steps up the church towers in Long Crendon and Cuddington, led by their musical director and conductor, David Quinn, to welcome in the start of May with their traditional madrigals from atop the respective church towers.

Local groups of residents gathered in the grounds of the two churches to enjoy this annual rite of Spring, before moving inside the church buildings to join in some of the most familiar madrigals.

If you were struggling to get out in time, so relatively early on a Bank Holiday, you can sample a little of the season's chorale sounds by visiting Youtube here
