That choral programme, as promised

The return match with the choir from Fort William this afternoon, and a very successful concert it was. A smaller hall and a slightly smaller choir, but the general consensus was that the overall performance was better than last night. Well, we down in Argyll kid on to the Fort William lot that the concert up there is only ever the dress rehearsal …
Here’s the programme of the choral pieces we sang:
Anvil Chorus from Il Travatore – Verdi
Chorus of Hebrew Slaves from Nabucco – Verdi
Grand March from Aida – Verdi
Brother Dear from Die Fledermaus – Johann Strauss
Glory and Love from Faust – Charles Gounod
Easter Hymn from Cavalleria Rusticana – Pietro Mascagni
finishing with
Carmen – Bizet
We were joined by a tenor who sang some lovely early Italian romantic songs, a viola player who gave us Massenet’s Meditation and a trumpeter for the Grand March from Aida. We were also graced by a pair of crowbar players for the anvil chorus!
