Spring Concert 24th March 2018

We performed our Spring Concert on 24th March at St Michael’s Church, Chagford TQ13 8BN. It featured two favourite works:

Haydn: Missa in Angustiis (Nelson Mass) and

Fauré: Requiem

Friend of the choir, Kit Newsome very much enjoyed the concert:

I DID enjoy Chagford Singers’ concert:  you have a super new conductor (very sensitive and calm) and lovely to hear Shaun on the organ, and of course all the Singers who were in good voice with an excellent variety in dynamic, clear diction and sensitively sung:  sopranos and altos particularly good!  Did like the young performers, both in the small orchestra and the soloists – ideal for this subtle French work.  How appropriate it is just before Holy Week:  we’re really very lucky having you all in Chagford!

We were joined by four soloists from the University of Exeter Chapel Choir, who beautifully accompanied the choir:

We were also fortunate to have a string quintet performing alongside the organ, in Michael Higgins’ new orchestration of the Fauré for string quintet:
