“Thank you so much for all your hard work. My family thought it was lovely and were very surprised that the audience was not larger and felt people really missed out not attending. It was a wonderful experience for me, thank you so much.” SH
CRUCIFIXION John Stainer Milton Abbey 9/4/22
Thank you to all the choir for your performance on Saturday in Milton Abbey. It may have been cold but your singing warmed the heart!
And a huge thankyou to Michael Aitkenhead and Neil Cullum for your singing , you conveyed the message brilliantly!
Also Richard Hall for accompanying so expertly on the chamber organ, and Chris Dowie for stepping in at the last moment to play the Abbey organ and lead us in rousing choruses and hymns – THANK YOU!
An excellent informative, entertaining, demanding and satisfying workshop yesterday, thank you Simon Lole!
About 115 singers in the United Church in Dorchester were expertly led through Stainer’s Crucifixion before enjoying a bountiful selection of cakes and giving an enthusiastic and convincing performance.
Thanks to Simon for his entertaining and humane leadership;
to Sally Plowright for her accomplished playing (and coping with a sticking key);
to Gareth Jones and Neil Cullum for their excellent solos;
to all those who made cakes and helped serve;
to RSCM Wessex for the poster design and spreading the word; and to everyone who came to join in.
