given by the All Saints Chorus and Orchestra, It was Handel’s “Messiah”. The musicians are celebrating their twentieth year.
Surprised I was to see a pub credited on the programme supporting a choir and orchestra of oratorios. Even more surprised to see
Up Your Street seniors in the actual chorus line-up.
I saw the ever-common sight now of lady tenors dressed in braces and boots. I loved all the voices and am always mesmerised by counter-tenors. Today we had Paul Kusel-Baum.
The trumpet playing was superb and rousing like the overload of sopranos
What a fabulous one-off event. Twas brillig. Thank you for our tickets.
Bach and Mozart today Palm Sunday at St John at Jerusalem in Hackney. I know that church has powerful wall-heaters. We’ve put our clocks forward but I don’t feel the comforting breath of summer yet.
