Season starts

Last night was the 2nd London Concord Singers rehearsal of the new season. Amongst the St. Cecila themed works that we are rehearsing is my motet, I Vespri di Santa Cecilia written in 1995 for the choir's 30th anniversary celebrations. Its strange re-visiting works as a performer, especially when you wrote them some time ago. My memory of the motet was that it was quite complete, but seen in the light of things I've written since, it is relatively straightforward; mind you there are some tricky corners, it is certainly needs working on. Currently we are working just on the chorus part (8 parts), later on we will then add the 6 soloists making a grand total of 14 parts. The main problem with learning the piece is that it is bi-tonal (and then some). I'll report back later on progress when we start to put it together.


I celebrated the new season by doing lots of web admin, I got all our web-pages up to date with concert dates and works to be performed plus sending off our concert information to the various useful sites which list them:-
