Summer concert : Tudor anthems and all that jazz …
We were a little unsure about whether we could do justice to a jazz piece – Will Todd’s Mass in blue. We need not have worried – our performance brought many in the audience to their feet! Our first-ever standing ovation?! What made it such a thrilling performance was Georgie Malcolm’s superb jazz soprano singing, a terrific jazz quartet (Ollie Nicholls on alto sax, Elliott Rooney on piano, Esther Ng on double bass and Darren Hasson-Davis on drums) and Sally’s energetic interpretation of the score.
The Tudor anthems (Byrd, Tallis, Dowland and the likes) just proved how versatile we are! We are most grateful to our viol players – Lorna Watson, Ryonfa Lee and Mary MacRobert.
If ye love me: Tallis (choir)
Come again: sweet love doth now invite : Dowland (Georgie Malcolm and viol consort)
For copyright reasons we can’t use recordings of Mass in blue.
The photo shows Georgie Malcolm – we think you’ll be hearing that name again ….
Next concert: Friday 14 December
