Cambridge choir at Blofield – link to Edward Paston

Our colleagues at Blofield Church, where one of the most prominent Pastons – Edward – has an impressive memorial, are putting on what promises to be a brilliant concert next week. Edward was a skilled musician and a supporter of William Byrd, amassing a large collection of his music and ensuring that many manuscripts survive to this day.
The Cambridge College of Gonville and Caius is patron to Blofield Church and this summer members of the college choir will be in Norfolk finding out about Dr Caius, who was born in Norwich and who attended Norwich School.
The choir will also give the concert in Blofield Church next Wednesday (July 3) with some music by William Byrd and with music from organ scholars and some lively spirituals.
*Everyone is welcome. Tickets, £10 at the door, include wine and savoury bites. Blofield Church is easy to find and well worth visiting on any occasion: Blofield Church, Church Road, Blofield, NR13 4NA

smiley The concert was indeed memorable, and the Blofield hospitality as superb as ever.
