Music by Schubert and Britten
While most churches go quiet around the August Holiday, St Lawrence Jewry seize the opportunity to make some (beautiful) noise. This year, for their annual summer music festival, St. Lawrence will be celebrating the work of two well-known and much loved composers. First up is Franz Schubert, who although only living to the age of 32, was one of the most prolific composers in history. He wrote over six hundred lieder (songs), ten complete symphonies, and a staggering body of chamber music. Then there is Benjamin Britten, the British composer, if alive today, would have reached his centenary year.

All concerts are at 1pm and free to attend, but they welcome any donations, with a recommendation of 5.
