Wonderful Night in Snaith Chapel

Sunday, April 9th, 2017

The Choral Society pulled out all the stops to give a magnificent performance of the Requiem and Cantique de Jean Racine by Fauré and The Armed Man by Karl Jenkins.

Solos by both Pam Waddington-Muse and Kevin Ormond and having Paul Tompson on the organ added to our performance of the Requiem greatly.

The Armed Man was released on 10/9/01 (The day before the Twin Towers) and it is sad that this performance was given after similar (although thankfully lower scale) incidents in London and Stockholm. The performance on the timpani by Chris Snowden added greatly to the evening, and the trumpet rendition of the Last Post  at the end of the performance, by Gabriel Snowden and James West, was perhaps the most atmospheric moment experienced by this choir member in 25 years.

The choir will have 2 weeks off, then enjoy our annual dinner, so the first Thursday back will be May 4th. If you would like to come and give us a try, you would be made most welcome.
