Events

Rather than rely on traditional fundraising, 1170 is a firm believer in raising funds which having fun! Rather than run a lot of events each year, we would rather focus on a small number of events that really appeal to the local community and help drive our view that the Church and Community are forever interlinked.

Following their sell out 2023 concert, 1170 and Cranleigh Arts are delighted to announce that The Queen’s Six will return to in 2024. .

The Queen’s Six: Alto, Elisabeth Paul, Tom Lilburn. Tenor, Nicholas Madden, Dominic Bland.  Baritone/Bass, Andrew Thompson, Simon Whiteley.

Based at Windsor Castle, members of the Queen’s Six make up part of the Lay Clerks of St. George’s Chapel, whose homes lie within the Castle walls.  This rare privilege demands the highest musical standards, as they sing regularly for the Royal family at both private and state occasions.  In 2018 this included the wedding of Prince Harry and Megan Markle, and in 2021, three members of the group sang at the funeral of HRH Prince Philip,The Duke of Edinburgh.  Most significantly however, it is the familiarity of living and singing together in Chapel every day that lends this group its distinctive closeness and blend, as well as an irresistible informality and charm.

Individually, members of the Queen’s Six have appeared in many of the most prestigious vocal ensembles on the circuit, including The Tallis Scholars, Tenebrae and The Sixteen.  Their repertoire extends far beyond the reach of the choir stalls: from austere early chant, florid Renaissance polyphony, lewd madrigals and haunting folk songs to upbeat jazz and pop arrangements.

Ticket price includes a glass of wine

Programme to be confirmed.

This concert will be held in St Nicolas Church, Cranleigh
