Saturday 28th October at St Mary Magdalene Church, Pulham Market.
Despite Covid and an assortment of seasonal ailments, some 30 singers finally took part in the event, forming a remarkably well-balanced chorus, its members enjoying an afternoon of study followed by tea and a 'scratch' performance, all under the baton of Margery Baker and accompanied by The Pulham Orchestra.
The choral programme featured well known and loved choruses from Brahms' Requiem and Handel's 'Messiah'
and included Mozart's 'Ave verum corpus' and Mendelssohn's 'Lift thine eyes' (from 'Elijah').
A splendid performance of Mozart's 'Et Exsultate Jubilate', (motet for soprano), with former BBC Singer Lindsay Gowers as soloist, allowed singers a delightful, if not well-earned rest!
Our thanks to all who took part - and for several very kind donations.
Proceeds from the event have been donated to the church's heating fund.
