Joyce Lang, 1922 – 2019

We are sad to report that Joyce Lang, former conductor of the Burford Singers, sadly died in April, just a few weeks after her 97th birthday.

Joyce was our conductor and Director of Music from 1980 to 1986 and conducted about 23 concerts. She was also conductor of Cirencester Choral Society from 1982 to 1990. In 1990, the Burford Singers and Cirencester Choral Society joined forces to sing the Bach B minor Mass and gave joint performances in Cirencester with Joyce conducting, and in Burford with Brian Etheridge conducting.

Joyce was the much-loved oldest resident of Windrush village. There will be a Celebration of her life in St Peter’s Church, Windrush on 24th May at 2.30 p. m.  to which everyone is very warmly invited.
