Francis Roads will lead a workshop of West Gallery church music, leading to Choral Evensong. It is open to all singers and players of wind and bowed string instruments. Young singers and instrumentalists will be welcome. Sight reading, though useful, is not essential, as the instruments double the voice parts.

If you are able to print out the music, please do so, place it in a loose leaf file, and bring it to the workshop.
