We returned to practice this term with seven new members interested in joining us . I was not expecting so many and it was exciting to see new people emerge to try out. Unfortunately there was not enough music , yet we managed to go through some of our pieces and managed to learn the Domine Jesu Christe from the War Requiem, which went quite well as a start. We also brushed up various other repertoire for the afternoon tea concert we shall be enjoying at Devauden on 7th October. We were also rehearsing in a new room-slightly smaller, but nevertheless adequate and it was good to see the choristers so motivated.
We hope to go from strength to strength and lean another piece from the War Requiem next week-Te Decet Humnus. I sense there is a sense of excitement about this term as there are so many excellent projects ahead! The importance of doing a good job with the Britten is on everyone's mind and I am proud of their committment.
