‘A Summer Idyll’

Thank you to everyone who came and heard us sing on 1st July. We had a wonderful evening, singing summer treats, both well known and new.  We were particularly proud to present the World Premiere of “The Lake at Carrowmore” by Sir Granville Bantock.

Also, “As Torrents in Summer” by Elgar, and his less known “Owls”. Sullivan’s “The Long Day Closes”, Stanford’s “The Blue Bird”, pieces by Macfarren, Sterndale Bennett, Vaughan Williams, Coleridge-Taylor and Parry.
