The Italy Tour Choir perform at St Michael’s Church, Cornhill

Following its successful tour to Italy...

Following its successful tour to Italy in July the Chamber Choir reprised some of the most popular pieces from their tour repertoire at St Michael’s Church, Cornhill in the City of London before half term.

Both sacred and secular works featured on the programme including Will Todd’s ‘Exalt Us in Your Love’, excerpts from Vivaldi’s ‘Gloria’ and lighter pieces such as ‘Chattanooga Choo Choo’ and ‘Goodnight Sweetheart’.

The Tenors and Basses also performed Billy Joel’s ‘The Longest Time’ with great style. Choral items were interspersed with some excellent organ solos from Han Se Kendall, Moses Ng, Alexander Tillotson and soon-to-be Oxford organ scholar, Ben Hunt.

The choir sang with great enjoyment as happy memories of concerts in Venice and Lake Garda were revived.
