A choral ensemble will be providing an evening of music at a Staffordshire Moorlands village this weekend.

St Peter's Church in Alstonefield will be the venue for the concert featuring the choral group of Beatus on Saturday (March 22) at 7.30pm.

The Yoxall based 'Beatus' is a 16-voice choral ensemble, which sings a wide selection of sacred and secular music from the 16th to 21st century.

Their programme features a range of composers such as Purcell, Bach & Vivaldi, and more up-to-date music by the likes of George Gershwin, John Rutter and Bob Chilcott.

The group, pictured right, performed at St. Margaret's in Wetton last summer and are now back in the area, this time at the 12th century church of St. Peter in Alstonefield. As well as providing lovely music, the singers bring a great selection of canapés with them to hand out in the interval. The ticket price also includes a glass of wine, soft or hot drink. Priced £8 for adults, and can be obtained from Cathy Reavy on 01335 310125, or email cathyreavy@gmail.com, or from Natural Choice in Ashbourne. Profits to St. Peter's Church.
