A SPRING concert by the Hardynge Choir is being held in Harpenden High Street Methodist Church next Saturday, April 4.

It will feature Rossini's Petite Messe Solennelle, a satisfying work on a number of levels which manages to be both pious and solemn while at the same time having moments of operatic intensity.
