Dovecote Christian Bookshop, Epsom

The COTE Trustees and Bookshop Managers have very sadly concluded they will have to close the Bookshop at the end of March 2020. Although economically viable, as with all Bookshops due to internet purchasing, sales have been in steady decline over many years. However, the main reason for closure is our unsuccessful attempts to attract younger, probably early retired, local Christians to take over the day-to-day management of the business. All three members of the Bookshop Management Committee are adversely affected by encroaching age and/or health issues. In addition, the Shopís Lease expires at the end of March 2020 so now is a suitable time to close the Shop.

From January 2nd, 2020, we shall be holding a HALF PRICE CLOSING DOWN SALE on all items apart from Standing Orders and Special Request Orders, where Recommended Retail Prices will be charged. We hope our customers will be able to work with us over the next 3 months to clear the stock, including Christmas gifts and cards, and be blessed by many real bargains. We thank you very sincerely for your support and loyalty to Dovecote since its opening in 1996. It has been a real privilege and pleasure to serve

Welcome All Wonders

Guest conductor: James Henshaw

Saturday 21st March 2020 7:30pm

St Martinís Church, Epsom KT17 4PX

Ralph Vaughan Williams Mass in G minor

Charles Villiers Stanford Latin Magnificat for double choir Jonathan Dove Welcome all Wonders in One Sight

John Tavener Hymn to the Mother of God and music by Tallis, Byrd and Finzi

Inspiring the title of Epsom Chamber Choirís spring concert is music by contemporary British composer Jonathan Dove. It isnít the only work expressing spiritual wonder, however: included on the bill are Vaughan Williamsí Mass in G minor, Stanfordís Latin Magnificat and John Tavenerís Hymn to the Mother of God.

James Henshaw returns as guest conductor for this spring concert in which the choir draws on the rich vein of English choral music. Anthems by Byrd and Tallis from five centuries ago are contrasted with works from both the early and late 20th century. A piece by another fine 20th century choral composer, Gerald Finzi, is also being performed but this time not by the choir but by clarinet and piano Ė his wonderfully rhapsodic Bagatelles.

Tickets: £14 in advance, £16 on the door. Under 18 free

Tel: 020 8672 5495 or 07940 486163
