Following last year's successful Rhyme and Reason readers take another dip into the many hymn books produced by the church over the years, exploring the beauty of words freed from the constraint of metrical tunes.

Tongue & Groove band leaders Dave Nelson (piano) and Peadar Long (saxophones, clarinets, flutes, whistles) produced an extraordinary and unforgettable head-to-head concert at Square Chapel last year. With the added advantage of Heptonstall's ethereal acoustic, Take Two will create an equally intense and inventive performance to thrill and delight.
