Today we prepared ourselves for the events of Holy Week with a performance of 'Olivet to Calvary' by J.H. Maunder. This Edwardian Cantata on the events leading up to the Crucifixion was the subject of our Good Friday devotions last year. This year we sang the whole work as a performance, with a rehearsal in the afternoon. The performance started at 6 pm, and the Choir, supplemented by some visitors from other choirs were joined by 3 soloists. Sarah Amos (Soprano), Hilary Platts (Tenor) from St Mary's Choir and our good friend Peter Webster (Baritone) sang beautifully for us, Joanna Chivers-Gibb played and directed the whole event, and the audience received the performance with enthusiasm. A vote of thanks was given by Mary Coales. This successful evening was a suitable beginning to our Holy Week devotions.

Many thanks to all who took part.

Peter, Hilary and Sarah, our soloists
