So it was the coldest March on record! Thankfully Spring seems to be getting back on track and the snow seems to have pretty much melted.
Stainer's Crucifixion is probably going to be put on the back burner for a while now, as it seems a bit odd to be doing it at any other time of year. We are hoping that a couple of pieces will find their way into the Summer Concert, as it would be a shame not to perform any of it this year.
Verdi's Requiem is now frighteningly close, 3 more rehearsals, then its show time! To me at any rate, we're sounding quite good, and even though we've yet to run it all the way though (or even in the right order) this concert should be something special. We've got a rehearsal next Friday with the orchestra, which is very exciting. I'm fully expecting to lose my place because I'm too busy listening to the wonderful music.
Tickets are still available through the usual sources, and if in doubt, head to the website for details.
Two musical titles from the same piece, I'm getting lazy......
