A north Norfolk choral society is preparing for a “sparkling evening of music” at their summer concert.

Fakenham Choral Society will perform Handel's anthems and John Rutter's arrangements at their Summer Sounds concert.

The show will take place at Fakenham Parish Church on Saturday, June 15, from 7.30pm, and begin with the Coronation Anthems.

One of the pieces, which were composed for the coronation of George II, has been performed at every British coronation since 1727.

This will be followed by Rutter's arrangement of seven spirituals, Feel the Spirit, and will see the choir joined by mezzo-soprano soloist Evie Anderson.
