The Marsh Warblers. A West Gallery Quire

'The Marsh Warblers choir is based near Tenterden in the Weald of Kent, England, and performs West Gallery Music - country church music from the Georgian period (ca. 1720-1850). We concentrate particularly on music known to have been performed in the Southeastern counties, principally from Kent and Sussex, and also perform secular music, such as glees and popular and patriotic songs of the period.'

From http://www.thewarblers.org.uk/index.htm, another excellent and informative local website. Includes pages on West Gallery Music, Georgian churches (what they were like inside before the Victorians 'improved' them"), Kent composers of West Gallery Music, photos, newsletter, diary.

The Marsh Warblers sing Remember Adams Fall by Thomas Ravenscroft.
