Originally 'Camberwell Green'
Originally ‘Camberwell Green’

170 years ago this year, who would believe that none other than Felix Mendelssohn (Queen Victoria’s favourite composer) wrote a song about Camberwell? The young composer stayed at 168 Denmark Hill and wrote his piece to reflect the tranquility of the area… Sadly his piece didn’t find fame under the title ‘Camberwell Green’ but it did after he had changed it to ‘Spring Song’.

Nevertheless, using Mendelssohn’s piece as our starting point, we’ll be rehearsing and performing music dedicated to springtime. It’s going to be fun!
