Mendelssohn's Elijah, Berwick Parish Church, January 2019
Guest Soprano Catherine Hadshar
Our latest concert took place on Saturday 7th December 2019 in Berwick Parish Church when the choir gave a joyous rendition of the Vivaldi Gloria and Schubert’s Mass No 5 in Ab D678.
Our fabulous soloists were Karina Bligh - soprano, Tamsin Davidson - mezzo soprano, Matthew McKinney – tenor and James Letham- bass and we were accompanied by a brilliant orchestra of 25 players including three horns, two trombones, a trumpet and timps!
The concert was much appreciated by the audience as well as hugely enjoyed by the choir. We now look forward to our next concert on 25th April 2020 when we will be singing Handel’s Messiah.
On Saturday 18th May 2019 in Berwick Parish Church the choir performed the very moving Requiem by Maurice Duruflé, Requiem Canticorum by James Whitbourn, a work written in 2010 with organ and saxophone solo accompaniment, and the Cantique de Jean Racine by Gabriel Fauré.
Our soloists were Tamsin Davidson - mezzo soprano, and Liam McNally - baritone.
We were accompanied by Joseph Beech on organ and Sam Lord on saxophone. In addition to the choral works Sam and Joseph dazzled us all with music by Saint-Saëns, Madeline Dring and Albinoni.
The concert was a great success and the audience was very appreciative.
