The music was a diverse mix of the classical eg Alleluia Jubilate; religious Pie Jesu; folk, popular and a great mixture provided by one school team as a "Mash Up"
The whole programme was a treat. The combined choirs' finale was (were!) "Strong" and "The Birds do Sing" by Ronal Corp but for me the "world premiere" of a piece composed by some sixth formers of Queen Anne's school called "I need your love", was the most memorable possibly because I have always enjoyed good folk music. The final rendition was of course "Happy Birthday" in honour of HM the Queen's ninetieth.
After the performances were over drinks and canapes were provided in the Church loft or possibly "Hall Upstairs" is the true title though the several flights of narrow stairs upwards, led me to believe that 'loft' was the apt description.
Enjoyment of the post performance refreshments was considerably enhanced by my falling into conversation with Keith Best a retired MP barrister who heads up the (or 'a'?) keep Britain in the EU campaign. When he learned that my preference was for a Brexit he was good enough to move on from European politics to more interesting matters but we arranged to meet again perhaps over coffee.
An unusual and very enjoyable evening. Attending concerts in churches or church halls not infrequently occurs in Italy but in England such events tend to take place in one's own parish and for a particular good cause. Thursday's concert was quite different.
