Choir sings The City Garden in St Peter’s Church, Hammersmith
The afternoon rehearsal went well and the concert was soon upon us. The concert started with three girls from the Royal College of Music singing Bob Chilcott’s Little Jazz Mass accompanied by David Coram on the organ and by the Will Todd Trio drums. The girls’ voices carried beautifully in the church and it was very special. The City Garden was great fun to sing in a smaller group and without the usual orchestral accompaniment. This time it was just the Will Todd Jazz Trio and a string quartet -strings (violins/viola) and a cello. The sound was very different and having the Jazz Trio certainly helped the syncopation in the trickier bits!
We were given a very warm welcome by St Peters’ and it was a very enjoyable day.
