Robin Griffith- Jones, Master of the Temple, has agreed that the choir can rehearse and perform in Temple Church. Greg Morris (organist at Temple Church) has agreed to be the musical director, and the society’s other officers are currently myself, Kate Lumsdon, Mark Trafford and Anthony Boswood. We have recruited a strong core group of nearly 100 voices – approximately 37 sopranos, 24 altos, 15 tenors, 24 basses, amongst whom are at least three judge members. We will welcome more, particularly female voices. You need to be able to read music and to sing. Our rehearsals are on Mondays at 6.00pm.
The first concert is on 23 June at Temple Church at 6.30pm (it will last an hour, and be followed by drinks in the Master’s Garden). The programme will be Bach – Awake thou wintry earth, Mozart – Ave verum corpus & Laudate Dominum, Mendelssohn – Hear my prayer, an organ solo, and Handel – excerpts from Part 3 of the Messiah. The soprano soloist will be the talented Grace Davidson.
If you are interested in joining please contact email@example.com or myself at firstname.lastname@example.org. And whether you wish to sing or not please do come to the inaugural concert on 23 June.
