A very productive rehearsal yesterday.We worked very hard on both Brahms and Berlioz. Whilst singing both in English it offered an exciting insight into Brahms German Requiem. Challenging, very beautiful and so different from Mozart and Jenkins. (Still people commenting on the impact of the November 11 performance).

Setting up/helping team 16.45. Seats from hall to chancel.
Amici arrive from 17.20
Warm up and rehearsal Brahms, Berlioz, Jenkins, Irish Blessing, Christopher Gower
Guests arrive for 18.00 sitting in nave
Programme open rehearsal/carols
Oh How lovely are thy Dwellings Brahms
