... was a treat when we went to hear "Oxford Voices", directed by Mark Shepherd, performing in the priory church at Marcillac-Lanville. They excelled in the a capella first half of the programme, although the Requiem de Fauré, which constituted the second half, seemed a genre in which they were less at home. The director's arrangement of Spem in Alium by Tallis, originally conceived for 40 voices, for the choir of 14, was a surprisingly effective encore.
On a more mundane level, we've been working on replacing the solid concrete slabs which were covering the "works" of the pool with something more user friendly. The irregular shape of the construction posed some interesting challenges, but it's largely sorted now. There's some waterproof cladding to go on to finish the job, yet.
Have you sampled any of the live recordings of choral music featured on the Moments Musicaux page of the website?
Or there's a Christmas Carol selection available here.
