The Curate's Egg

On Sunday we went to All Saints Church, Margaret Street for a concert by The Curate's Egg. They are an all female choral choral group directed by Adey Grummet. They sang a group of unaccompanied choral items including Gustav Holst's stunning Ave Maria and then, along with harpist Gabriella dall'Olio, they performed Britten's Ceremony of Carols. It was a stunning performance with some lovely solo contributions and fine harp playing from dall'Olio. It is many years since I have heard the work and it was good to make its acquaintance again. The concert was in aid of the All Saints restoration fund and I only wish that more people had been there.
