On Wednesday evening, St. Margaret’s church was filled with the music of great masters of the past: Bach, Handel, Purcell and Vivaldi to name but a few.  The beautiful weather, scenery of St. Margaret’s churchyard, generous acoustic, large audience and polished performers made for a concert to remember.
The programme began with a series of poised solos, leading to some stunning duets and consort items, with the choir beginning the second half.  Professional tenor soloist Samuel Boden added an extra dimension to the evening, alongside baroque instrument demonstrations from Mr. Lewis (natural trumpet) and Mrs. Nathan (oboe d’amore).  Congratulations to the pupils for their immense achievements in pulling off such a challenging and diverse programme to such a high standard, especially with the backdrop of examinations.
