October-November 2015

The choir has been fairly relaxed over the summer period, with some absences, but we have managed our usual anthems during Communion, which gives pleasure to us, and I hope to the congregation. Our highlight was ‘O Lovely Peace’ by Handel for the Harvest Festival. We had Caroline and Chris joining us for the occasion, which is always good, and Marcus was conducting, so the tricky bit at the end went well - as did the ‘Wavy Corn’ passage that gives the anthem its common name.

We are starting to plan for the Carol Service, and will be having rehearsals with the Augmented Choir from mid-October. We allow for plenty rehearsal time as few of them can manage all the rehearsals. But a good number of singers have signed up already, including some tenors, so we hope for another lovely Carol Service. (Dec 13th - put it in your diaries!)

My thanks to the regular members of the choir as always - we would not have a choir without you! If anyone can join us, do let me know.
