St Hilary Adventure

Our recent concert with Marazion Apollo Male Choir was a resounding success and took us to a lovely new venue. We had not performed in St Hilary church before and we were really impressed with the unusual interior and the famous acoustic.

The choirs  join together to sing Morte Christe lead by MD Kate Wood-Cattran.

We were really pleased that we had set off early because the coach got stuck in the narrow lane approaching the church and we had to walk the last bit – thank goodness the rain, so overwhelmingly present during the week, had abated and it was not freezing cold!

The standard of singing in this concert was incredibly high with the sweet tones of the Ladies contrasting with the powerful delivery of the Gentlemen and yet blending beautifully for the finale. The Ladies were particularly pleased to be able to present a performance of the gorgeous carol that they recently commissioned from Cornish composer Becky McGlade. They are preparing this stunning piece for Truro Big Sing in the Cathedral on 12th December and, judging by the audience reaction, it is going to sound wonderful.

The evening was rounded off with refreshments prepared by the ladies of St Hilary Church and then we departed for home, but not without a few “big coach in a little lane” issues!    All’s well that ends well!
