Philip Norman entertained us through the afternoon with detailed knowledge of the history and workings of Requiem Mass's with examples of famous and not so, versions and how composors constructed their music. There were over 35 in the audience all happily taking part in the singing of pieces.
We performed the "Kyrie" and "Gloria" from Missa Choralis by Franz Liszt which we also performed at our Spring Concert with the Harlow Singers. The Sangerstevne was very well attended at all of its venues and concerts.
We had an enlightened and entertaining evening with Philip giving a very good talk on Christmas carols.
A wonderful and entertaining evening was had by all. A good turn out for a Summer Concert which included a piece written by the accompanist Richard Wilkins which was premiered at the concert. He was extremely happy with the performance.
Pieces arranged by the Musical Director Philip Norman were also very well received, particularly with amusement the way he kept the choir holding one note on his piece Kalinka.
