Our Christmas concert at Exmouth
Our Christmas concert was held on 14 December at Withycombe church, Exmouth, with proceeds going to ELF.
In the Cantilena tradition, the programme covered a wide range of music, spanning four centuries.
The choir was supported by the musical talents of soprano Heloise West and organist / accompanist Jonathan Watts.
A performance of extracts from Maunder’s Bethlehem was interspersed with enthusiastic audience participation in traditional Christmas carols.
Choral works included Bizet’s Te Deum and Caldara’s Magnificat, the latter including an engaging solo interlude sung by Kaye, accompanied by Patrick on recorder and Jonathan on the piano.
In the interval, the audience and choir enjoyed socialising over wine and mince pies.
We are grateful to the vicar at Withycombe for letting use the Church for the concert, and to the volunteers from the Church community, who kindly helped so ably with the catering on the day.
Thanks also to our generous sponsors Barclays Bank and The Jack in the Green, Rockbeare.
