Dear WCS

What a great rehearsal this week! Thank you so much - a really committed, bright and engaging sound (even better when you get your heads up!). I'm very excited now, for our concert, let's crack on and sell those last few tickets so we can get another full house.

For those not able to attend, we sang ALW's "Memory" from Cats, and then from Mozart the "Confutatis", "Sanctus" and both "Osanna" fugues, and did a really tremendous job singing through the first two movements, with excellent energy and concentration. Well done.

We have four rehearsals left, so I hope to cover all of our music over the course of those sessions, I think we will be in terrific shape for this show.

If I may, a small plug for one of my own concerts: on Friday 10 May I will be giving a late night (well, 9.45pm) concert as part of the Bristol Early Music Festival at All Saints, Clifton - three organ and electronics meditations on pieces by Bach, Tallis and Byrd, with the original pieces sung by the Gesualdo Six (who are performing their own concert at 7.30 on the same evening). 35 minutes, free, no booking required: though if you want to go to the 7.30pm concert (just the Gesualdo Six, no womblings from me) then you'll need a ticket. They are fab. 

Very best wishes
