LLANGWM’s popular Music at Lunchtime series in St Jerome’s church draws to a close this Sunday, April 7, as two well-known local pianists, Sam Howley and Seimon Morris step onto the stage.

The two paired up for last year’s concerts for a sell-out event and tickets for Sunday’s performance, entitled Two Pianos, are selling quickly.

Sam Howley composed the music for last year’s opera marking the Armistice, WW1: a Village at War, as well as its predecessor WW1: a Village Opera in 2014.

Seimon Morris, as well as being a pianist and choir leader, is a former head chorister at St George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle.

He accompanied the Pembrokeshire-based ladies’ choir Bella Voce at the Albert Hall in May last year.

The organisation behind the concerts, the Friends of St Jerome, is an offshoot of Heritage Llangwm whose money-raising paid for the restoration of St Jerome’s church, built in 1185.

The project included a major research element into Llangwm’s Flemish heritage, and a tapestry, drawn by local school children and stitched by local residents, the Talking Tapestry of Langum.

The concerts are one of a number of events organised by the friends, including a medieval weekend with a concert featuring the award winning young guitarist, Christopher Roberts, who will be playing his adaptation of early Welsh harp music by Robert ap Huw (1580-1665) on Sunday, June 30, at 7.30 pm.

This year the medieval weekend will also include a re-enactment of the story of Adam de la Roche who endowed St Jerome’s.

The re-enactment will include a horseback journey accompanied by volunteers doing a sponsored walk, from Roch Castle, using quiet byways, to Llangwm.

Money raised by the events goes towards bills incurred by the display of the tapestry in a side chapel of St Jerome’s including broadband for the accompanying app as well as heating and lighting.

Tickets for Two Pianos, which is sponsored by Fred Rees Garages, cost £6 at the door, £5 online at heritagellangwm.org.uk/concerts, or from Pamela Hunt on 01437 899966.
