The Choir delivered a cracking good Concert to a most appreciative audience. We sang well and the "Specials" were great too. Janet as usual wonderfully accompanied the vast majority of the music and Maureen expertly accompanied the soloists except for the Quartet.
The Quartet, comprising of Penny, Margaret, Sandra and Vera sang John Rutter's lyrical "Look at the World." It was just lovely, they are a special foursome.
Liz sang an outstanding "Panis Angelicus." The very first clear, pure note raised the hairs on the back of my neck and the rest of the piece was delivered just as beautifully.
Sandra has played her clarinet in Concerts before but never with the outstanding quality she gave on Saturday. Her performance of "Prelude" from The Victorian Kitchen Garden was terrific.
I raised a few chuckles with my rendition of "The Water Closet" extraordinarily assisted by the finding in the Church loo, a picture of an outside loo, commemorating the twinning of the toilet at Tuxford Church with a loo in Kenya!!!!!!!!! You had to be there to believe the coincidence.
Ash put his soul into directing our performance as always. He does inspire us to give of our best.
His Violin solo Czardas was brilliantly played with terrific verve and energy.
All in all a good night out, enjoyed by everyone.
