barts choir

Went to see Barts Choir once again on Wednesday, at the Albert Hall once again, and, as often, had to leave at half time since it would be too late to stay for it all. So we heard Beethoven Coriolan and Dvorak's Te Deum, but not Brahms's Requiem. They were good as ever, and it's impressive to see Bethan performing in such prestigious venues. I had been looking for the Dvorak on CD but hadn't found it; it was good.

The time we saw them before that was at the Royal Festival Hall on Monday 8 April. They were doing Faure's Requiem, with in the first half Vaughan Williams Serenade to Music, Britten Sea Pictures (no choir) and Finzi. We stayed for the whole thing that time. Both occasions, as usual, others from church were with us.

In between they did something at the Cadogan Hall, but we weren't able to go for some reason.
