And off we go

Well, last night was the final rehearsal before the London Concord Singers anniversary bash on Saturday. Saturday morning we are joining up with some 2 dozen former members of the choir to rehearse Handel's Birthday Ode for Queen Anne. Then at 6.00pm we have our anniversary concert at St. Giles Cripplegate in the Barbican.


The current choir will be singing Harris's Faire is the Heaven and Naylor's Vox dicentis:Clama and premiering my new piece Ursi Carmina (Bear Songs) written specially for the occasion. Then we'll be joined by the former members and an orchestra (specially recruited for the occasion) to sing the Handel and Mozart's Sancta Maria, Mater Dei. Besides the former members who are singing there are more who will be in the audience. It should be a great occasion. The reason for the early start of the concert, is that afterwards we all go off for a celebratory bash.
