The Triptych Singers premiere Awake! my soul

The Triptych Singers - St Mildred's Croydon

A lovely concert last night at St Mildred's Church, Croydon in aid of their organ fund given by the Triptych Singers, conductor Jim Jelley. As part of the choir's 50th anniversary celebrations, my anthem Awake, my soul! was commissioned for them and it received its first performance as part of the concert.

The evening also included a terrific performance of Ginastera's Danzas Argentinias by the church's organ scholar, Ben Abraham. A lovely evening all round, and many thanks to everyone for their hard work.

The organ fund is aiming to raise money to rehome a fine, 1906 Lewis & Co organ, originally from St Paul's United Reformed Church in Croydon, to St Mildred's. The Lewis organ is one of only two in Croydon to hold an Historic Organ Certificate (the other being the Hill organ at Croydon Minster). Find out more and donate at the project website.
