What we have been up to...
After Christmas we began rehearsing Stainer’s Crucifixion which we presented in Great Casterton Church on March 16th, with Rob Gildon and William Collison as soloists. We were pleased to welcome a few extra “guest singers” to the choir for this performance.
Our two main events this year are our week of services at Truro Cathedral in July, and a weekend of services at Worcester Cathedral in October. We will also sing Evensong in the Chapel Royal at Hampton Court in September. Other venues include Grimsthorpe Castle and Barnack Church.
Although we managed to remain intact during the dark days of lockdown, coincidental family moves have resulted in a shortage of singers in our Bass section - the first time this has ever happened to us, and we are endeavouring to rectify this. So if there are any Bass singers out there at a loose end at the moment……………?
Despite all this, we have been able to welcome several new members to the choir over the last few months.
