As shown in the poster above, this will be Haydn’s Missa Cellensis Hob. XXII:5 along with Handel’s Zadok the Priest and the concerto grosso in B flat major by William Boyce. The concert will be Sunday 20th November.
The entertainment provided by Professor Angela Gallop and former All Saints Singers Music Director, Dr Gulliver Ralston, was spectacular – the evening was attended by some 40 guests who enjoyed the most interesting insight into what a forensic scientist has to deal with, most of it rather unsavoury, and the hilarious songs (mostly by Noel Coward) and poetry, performed by Gulliver – with great conviction!
The host, Chairman David Russell, ably assisted by Orchestral Manager, Tony Furze, impressed everyone – by turning around the terrible daytime weather at the very last minute – to enable guests to spend a very enjoyable time eating and drinking in the magnificent grounds of his home.
I believe that the aim of raising much needed funds for the choir should have been achieved, and a big thank you to the organizers is in order.
