The indulgent among us ate chocolate eggs, some sat down to enjoy a good lunch with wine, followed by feet up on the sofa, a good book, a spot of television perhaps or even Verdi’s Aida live from The Met.?
Instead, a small but enthusiastic group of 15 singers chose to gather in The Matrix to sing madrigals and part songs.
The first rehearsal given by Sebastian in his new “relaxed” style was great fun. His carefully chosen range of music from the 16th century gave every voice a chance to shine and an opportunity to listen to each other only possible in a small group. (When we got the notes right, that is!) Tony’s particular favourite; with its repeated Fa la la chorus and suggestions of merry lads and dainty nymphs, is truly the “month of Maying”
Much more to come from this group.
