Soldiers of Hyde Project

datePosted on 13:13, November 1st, 2014 by Site admin

Helmetcleang5Under the auspices of Hyde 900 there is a project afoot to research and document the lives of the soldiers of the First World War who are commemorated in St Bartholemew’s Church.

Apart from Regiment, Rank and Age, the intent is to explore the stories behind the names, to bring to our very comfortable and peaceful lives in Hyde today, a concept of the community during this time.

If you are interested in joining a working party; enjoy research –   ably assisted by Alys Blakeway and  would like to take part in what  promises to be a fascinating task, with an excellent group of  ‘ Hydeites’  please contact Caroline Scott on 01962853997 or e mail [email protected] or [email protected]

Equally if anyone has any information on any of the soldiers who so sadly did not return, all leads are welcome at this initial stage.

Michaelmas Music 2014 – Sounds Wonderful

datePosted on 08:40, July 2nd, 2014 by Site admin

Welcome to the fifth anniversary Michaelmas Music programme in which we celebrate the musical tradition of Hyde Abbey in the acoustic gem of the church of St. Bartholomew, Hyde.

Our eclectic programme takes you through the ages from the early music of Vox Humana and Index Cantorum – appropriate to the history of Hyde Abbey – right up to date with the fabulous contemporary virtuoso guitarist Jad Azkoul. En route we welcome back Hyde900’s own choir and our regular student participation from the mixed choirs of the University of Winchester. We also renew our convention of featuring, in our inaugural concert, two young Winchester musicians Jenny Whitby (flute) and Max McCulloch (violin) at the start of their careers.

Michaelmas Music provides an opportunity for the Winchester community to enjoy high quality music performed in a unique local setting. Come along and enjoy the sound.
