Our concert on Saturday had a good appreciative audience and we were very pleased with the performance. No recording I'm afraid, but the new setting of Lucis Creator Optime went very well; as anticipated the bitonal textures worked very well in the rich acoustic of St. Mary's Church.

It was interesting singing one to a part in such an acoustic, it seemed to lend a clarity to the textures which you don't get when using a bigger group.

The Aston Gaude, mater matris Christi and the Fayrfax Magnificat Regale were both large-scale, quite long complex numbers which proved somewhat tiring to perform. But achieving a conductorless performance with just 6 of us was, I think, a significant achievement.
