The varied sounds of musical culture during the Queen’s time on the throne were brought to life at Brundall’s St Laurence Church on Saturday afternoon.
Inspired by television chorister Gareth Malone, a group of people in the village east of Norwich formed a choir for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.
The choir performed during a garden party at the Church, in The Street. They performed five songs from different decades, such as Snow Patrol’s Chasing Cars and Hotel California by The Eagles.
Conductor of the choir, Fiona Sexton, who is head of music at Flegg High School, in Great Yarmouth, said: “Singing in choirs seems to be popular at the moment so I was hopeful we would get a good response from local people, but I’ve been delighted because people have been really enthusiastic.
“Everybody has been really committed from the start and it’s been a really positive thing for the community.”
