Rehearsal at Leverstock Green

 

After the service at Leverstock Green

 

 

On April 22nd 2018 members of eight choirs in the region gathered at Holy Trinity, Leverstock Green to prepare and take part in a service of choral evensong. The music, taken from King of Glory, King of Peace, was largely new to many of the singers, but under the capable direction of Area Chairman Marie Price, the singers rose to the challenge of learning it in the two hours allocated for rehearsal. The accompanist was Nicholas King, who delighted us with his harmonies in Hyfrydol.

The choirs represented were: Holy Trinity, Leverstock Green; King Charles the Martyr, Potters Bar; RSCM Area Chamber Choir; St John the Baptist, Markyate; St Mary Ponsbourne; St Mary-at-Finchley; St Paul, Bedford; St Thomas, Stopsley. The music included Responses by Bramma, Canticles by Grayston Ives, Pitoni’s Cantate Domino and Bairstow’s Let all mortal flesh keep silence as well as a psalm and hymns. The Rev Lizzie Hood, Vicar of Holy Trinity officiated, assisted by the Rev James Reveley, Vicar of St Andrew’s, Bedford.
