St John Passion, St Paul’s Knightsbridge cond. Papadopoulos
On Saturday, I took part in a performance of JS Bach’s St John Passion BWV 245 at St Paul’s Church, Knightsbridge, an in-house performance of the work. The professional church choir, of whom I am one of the altos, shared the solo arias as step-outs: I sang Von den Stricken meiner Sünden. Director of Music Stephen Farr played continuo with music scholar & cellist Finlay Spence and an orchestra of instrumentalists from the associated Royal College of Music was directed by Assistant Organist Michael Papadopoulos.

Messiah, Hertford Choral Society, 3 Nov 2018
Last weekend I was delighted to return to All Saints Hertford to sing the Alto arias in a performance of Handel’s Messiah. Conductor Derek Harrison conducted the Camerata of London in a performance of the early Prout edition of Handel’s enduring masterpiece. Hertford Choral Society have a strong local following and we all really enjoyed the warmth of both the music-making and the reception of the performance.
