MUSIC for HEAVEN and EARTH July 2nd 2022 Canterbury Cantata at St Paul’s Church, Canterbury Our summer concert featuring the challenging Bach motets Singet dem Herrn and Jesu Meine Freude, contrasted with the serene Mawby Ave Verum Corpus and Shearing’s delightful collection of jazzy interpretation of Shakespeare Sonnets, Music to Hear, brought our choral year to an end.< We were very lucky to be joined by pianist Helen Crayford, Emily Rossiter on cello and Robert Rawson on double bass to complete the ensemble under the baton of Emily Renshaw. The concert also featured from within the choir, soprano, Anna Clare Bartlett as soloist in the Handel aria Meine Seel Hört im Sehen, Diana Gabriel on oboe and Stephen Barker performing the Stanford Prelude on the organ. A French friend commented afterwards,” A beautiful evening by a very talented and generous choir”. Do look out for our concerts next year, which will be featured on the website and our facebook pages… hope to see you there. With thanks to Emily Renshaw for her direction and encouragement, the committee and Tim Kidd for the photographs.
