Alongside are works by Biber and Ysaye, who in turn inspired, and were inspired by, Bach's monumental works.

Thursday 23rd October, 7:30pm, (note day!) St Edmund's Church, Southwold - London Haydn Quartet perform excerpts from Haydn's Quartets opus 50.
One of the world's leading period instrument quartets, the London Haydn Quartet was born out of a passion for Haydn, and for many years they dedicated themselves exclusively to his works. They performwith gut strings, classical bows and from contemporary sources. The Quartet is continuing it's recording cycle of Haydn's complete quartets for Hyperion with a recording of the completel opus 50 set of quartets, from which they will perform a selection in Southwold.

Saturday 6th December, 7:30pm, St Edmund's Church, Southwold - Seraphim perform in the Christmas Extravaganza
'Beautiful sounds in beautiful spaces' is the aspiration of Seraphim, directed by leading choral conductor and singing teacher Vetta Wise. The group is the result of Ms. Wise's cherished ambition to bring together a small number of talented singers of exceptional ability. Seraphim's nine singers are all experienced performers as soloists or members of eminent choirs and choral groups throughout East Anglia. We are delighted to welcome them to the now traditional Concert Series Christmas Extravaganza!
The programme will include Vivaldi's Gloria, with a baroque orchestra led by James O'Toole, and other festive delights.
Tickets are £12 and refreshments will be served in the interval.
