A candlelit advent concert was enjoyed by all on Saturday courtesy of the organisers at St Lawrence Church, Stretton Grandison, who asked them to return again this year and kick-start the festive season.
We were very grateful for the warm reception shown by Elizabeth Mullenger and the equally enthusiastic helpers and audience.
Cantabile contributed to the wonderful Britten Centenary Concert held at Hereford Cathedral by singing elements of the Ceremony of Carols.

Extracts from Britten’s Ceremony of Carols
Last night Cantabile were guests of the Hereford Rail Mail Voice Choir, https://www.facebook.com/HRMVC, in aid of church funds for St Paul’s Church, Tupsley in Hereford.
It was a full house and both choirs sang their ‘sets’ in front of a thrilled audience even prompting the odd gasp and “WOW”.
An impromptu joint performance at the end was a fitting finish to the evening and a true crowd pleaser! A warm thank you to the hospitality of St Paul’s and the Hereford Rail Mail Voice Choir and the organisers of the event who worked so hard to create a really enjoyable evening of entertainment.
Cantabile Girls Choir sang Purcell, Schubert, Mozart, Rutter, Neum and Kodaly as part of the Three Choirs Festival Plus programme of events that run alongside the Festival. They performed for a sell-out crowd to rapturous applause. The conductor was Jo Williamson.
