Patrick Hawes is back in Lincolnshire to conduct a concert this weekend.

Louth Choral Society presents Song of Songs by Hawes at the town’s St James’s Church on Sunday, March 24 at 7.30pm.

Song of Songs is a programme designed to explore a number of Christian themes which come together at this time of year.

Hawes’s Song of Songs, one of his personal favourites, is an effective sequence of six songs for high soprano soloist, choir, strings and harp - and it has proved popular with choirs and audiences alike.

The varied programme of music will feature guest soloists and all-female string quartet Raven.

Soprano Natalie Clifton-Griffith last sang with Louth Choral Society in 2002 - and last worked with Hawes at Winchester Cathedral in September 2012.

Each of the four male soloists is a recent graduate of the choir of St John’s College, Cambridge and now embarking on their professional careers.

Tickets for Song of Songs cost £12 and £8 - call 01507 463410. For details visit louthchoral.co.uk.
