Autumn Reflections

On All Souls Day – the 2nd November – St Luke’s Choir sang Faure’s Requiem in a concert of ‘Autumn Reflections’.

It was lovely to be able to welcome back former St Luke’s parishioner Mike Leigh, now a vicar in Scarborough, to sing the baritone solo. Helen Vincent, who has held choral scholarships at both Leeds and Lincoln Cathedrals, sang a beautiful rendition of the Pie Jesu.  Following the restoration of the organ a few years ago, it is wonderful to hear the full range of sounds and colours which it can produce, and it certainly had a good work-out under the capable hands (and feet!) of David Howard.

In the first half, the audience were treated to a compilation of reflective instrumental and vocal solos. The young people in the treble choir provided a gorgeous start to the concert. It was lovely to hear pieces performed by Alison and Hannah Bayliss together and Annie and David Howard. There was a taster of French music played by Chris Bryan (cello) and Helen Warry (violin) and more impassioned singing from Mike. Many thanks go to all the singers and instrumentalists, and of course to Marjorie for serving interval refresh­­ments. Even after accounting for expenses, a profit of about £150 was made, so we should also have a happy treasurer!

And so to carols … (!)
