What's On



The Endelienta Scholars
Saturday 26th September, 7.30pm, St Endellion Church

Endelienta ScholarsThe Endelienta Scholars, formed in 2014, is a young, vibrant, ambitious chamber choir comprised of choral scholars (both past and present) from some of the nation's top universities. (just some of them are shown here!) They are proud to be founded and generously supported by the charity Endelienta. Following a hugely successful debut last year, they return to St Endellion with another stunning programme of British choral classics, including works byVaughan Williams, Howells, Macmillan and concluding with Finzi's Welcome,Sweet and Sacred Feast. The Vaughan Williams Mass in G will be sung with a double choir and soloists. Join Oliver Tarney (conductor) and Jamal Sutton (organist) for what promises to be another spell-binding concert.

Tom Hickox in Concert
Friday 23 October, 8.00pm, St Endellion Church

Tom HickoxFresh from recording his second album after triumphant appearances on Jools Holland, at Glastonbury and elsewhere, cult singer-songwriter Tom Hickox gives a first gig in the glorious church where he is perhaps better known as chairman of the Summer Music Festival. Though often compared to Tom Waits, Leonard Cohen and Scott Walker, his magnificently moody style is all his own and his lyrics, ranging from heart-on-sleeve sincere to tongue-in-cheek ironic, would merit him a place in the book festival programme as a poet. The Daily Telegraph has already been won over by "the depth and intensity" of his voice and music calling him "a true original". Come along and decide for yourself!

Tickets, £10 (free to accompanied under-16s)

Messiah pics







This is sure to be an utterly enchanting performance of Handel's masterpiece: the church is magical, the soloists are captivating, and Devon Baroque, the renowned specialist early music ensemble, brings an authenticity and atmosphere all of their own. Just add the exuberant panache of conductor Christopher Gray and the artistic fluency of Three Spires Singers for an evening to remember.
The soloists are soprano Grace Davidson, tenor Nicholas Hawker and baritone Stephen Kennedy, with the alto soloist to be confirmed.
We do advise you to book in advance for this Three Spires' event which we are hosting at St Endellion; this rather special seasonal concert is likely to be very popular. Please also note the early start time of 6.00 pm

£15 for unreserved seats in the main nave and £7.50 for under 18s
£12 for unreserved seats in the side aisles and £6 for under 18s

The Endelienta Poetry Group
2nd Saturday of the month, 10.00-12.00 Stone Barn, St Endellion, PL29 3TP

Helen JaggerLed by Helen Jagger, this group meets to write together and bring work for constructive but critical comment. The next meeting is on Saturday 12th September.
Helen's aim is to focus on writing with reference out to contemporary published poetry, and is modelled on the weekly meetings of the highly successful Indian King Poets whose members have been published in dozens of different literary magazines, and won a number of prizes.
Each session will start with writing in response to various prompts (lines from a current poetry magazine, a piece of music, a visual image) for 30-40 minutes; we will then read our first drafts aloud, and offer encouragement to continue redrafting. The second part of the session is an opportunity for you to bring a poem in progress for constructive criticism. Often these poems will be redrafted versions of work started in the group, so we will all learn from being involved in our own and others' creative process, whilst authors remains absolutely at liberty to reject all criticism ...
Helen Jagger is a published poet and tutor of more than 35 years teaching experience. Her work has been published in magazines in the UK, US and Australia. She runs weekly poetry workshops as well as the Poetry Society's North Cornwall Stanza.
Cost: £7 full/£5 concessions, which goes to the Endelienta project.
If you'd like know more or to book, please call Helen on 01840 212161 or email her on helenjaggerpoet@btconnect.com.

Devils VIolinInternational story teller Daniel Morden joins forces with three virtuoso musicians, cellist Sarah Moody, guitarist Dylan Fowler and violinist Oliver Wilson- Dickson for an evocative and enchanting evening of rich dynamic storytelling accompanied by visceral, melodic live music. The result is a hypnotic cinema for the mind. The dream like imagery of fairy-tale will be an analogy of the trials and challenges we meet in our everyday lives. The perfect wedding that ends so many fairy tales is where this piece begins. The Forbidden Door will celebrate the commitment and sacrifices necessary for the shared adventure of a life spent together.
