We all thoroughly enjoyed joining St Saviour’s Choir and String Ensemble last night to celebrate the 120th anniversary of the dedication of the church.
The virtuosic solos within Haydn’s Nelson Mass were beautifully sung by Fleur and the whole piece was full of energy and jubilation. Haydn himself stated ‘At the thought of God my heart leaps for joy, and I cannot help my music doing the same.’ – a truly fitting piece for the occasion.
Saturday 15th October saw 4 local choirs join together – Aeolian Singers, Hardynge Choir Radlett Choir and ourselves – with St Albans Chamber Orchestra to sing Haydn’s Creation in St Albans Abbey. Always an amazing privilege to sing in such surroundings and it was fantastic to be part of the 150 or so voices performing the work to a large audience. Many thanks to all that came out to listen.
THANK-YOU to those who joined us. It was great to see such a turn out and we look forward to singing with you.
Fancy singing with us? All voices welcome. Pop along to our open rehearsal on Tues 6th Sept. We’ll be singing Haydn’s Creation ready for the St Cecilia Concert in the Abbey and starting on Christmas with Ceremony of Carols in December. Email email@example.com for more info or just pop along on the night. Rehearsal starts 8pm at Fleetville Junior School, Hatfield Rd, AL1 4LW.
