Bach's St Matthew's Passion

Did you see Some of you may have seen this broadcast on BBC4 last night. If not, here it is on youtube. Just follow the link.
This was a "promenade performance" of Bach's St Matthew Passion in Campfield Market building in Manchester. The Sixteen are a renowned choral ensemble. Streetwise Opera is a voluntary arts group working with the homeless and rough sleepers.
I found the performance profoundly moving

Letter of thanks: Autumn ConcertDear HCS members, I am writing to send a big thank you to everyone who took part in Tuesday’s concert. There were a lot of positive comments from the audience, saying how wonderful the choir sounded. We thank Kate for her expert direction and her lovely solo items and Matthew for accompanying so well and for his great solo pieces. I do hope that our new members enjoyed taking part in the concert. I really felt that our new voices contributed much to enhancing the sound of the choir – making us even better than we were before! So much hard work goes into staging a concert so thank you again to all our unsung heroes who book venues, arrange publicity, set up staging, sell tickets, serve refreshments and clear up afterwards. Thank you to everyone. Best wishes
Christine and Isabel
