So blogs do have their uses

As I sing in London Concord Singers and act as their secretary, the doings of the choir find their way into my blog. I was recently in contact with Mary Jane Leach whose work, Song of Sorrows the choir performed at their April 6th concert. It turns out that she'd read about the performance in my blog - so blogs do have a use after all.

The choir are assembling a programme of music for their July concert, this will be repeated in Tallinn at a concert in the Lutheran Cathedral and at a sung service. We're going to be singing some Estonian music, in Estonian. So I'm now tracking down contact email addresses for Urmas Sisask and Veljo Tormis, to let them know of our performances.

We're doing Sisask's Benedictio and Tormis's St. John's Day Songs. But we're not negelecting English music as the programme will also include Richard Rodney Bennett's Missa Brevis, written for Canterbury Cathedral Choir.
