We held our Christmas Concert on Saturday 8th December 2018 at 7.30pm in Malmesbury Abbey and the feedback was excellent!
Hallelujah it’s Christmas!
Conductor: Iain Duffin
Accompanist: John Hughes
Trumpeter: Rowan Ireland
Hannah Hickman (soprano)
Andrew King (tenor)
Ian Stockley (bass)
Featuring Messiah highlights
Handel’s coronation anthems: ‘Zadok the Priest’, ‘The King Shall Rejoice’ and ‘My Heart is Inditing’
A Message from our Conductor: “Our soloists were all impressive and all three I thought brought a little extra magic in the evening. Numerous people in the audience complimented the choir’s diction (“I heard every word” was a comment reported by more than one singer), and said how enjoyable the Coronation Anthems were. The Messiah choruses, especially “For unto us” and “Hallelujah” fizzed and bounced as Handel should”.
Our Retiring Collection was in aid of Prostate Cancer UK. The amount raised from a generous audience was £751.44 which is a superb result. This will help the Charity to spend the funds where best needed.
