We've just finished our pre-Tour concert at the beautiful Comper Church of St Mary's, Wellingborough, where they had to bring in extra chairs to accomodate our audience. Many thanks to Fr. Robert Farmer, Roger Smith, and the Churchwardens for allowing us to use their resonant and glorious Church. The concert went very well, especially Bednall's Psalm 150; we now know which pieces will be in our concert programmes and have learnt all the choral pieces for the services (which are different) ... still waiting on hymn choices from some Churches - worrying as the well-known hymns in North America are not well-known in the UK. Jazz Mass is now on for the concert at Trinity Church Wall Street - Mr Pinel waving and Mr Dunleavy on piano. More medical conditions and food allergies are coming out of the woodwork - weeks after the deadline for our insurers. I've never known anyone with an allergy to men before. We're still having problems with our Rochester venue and may end up spending an afternoon there with nothing to do - ho hum. Two more weeks in rehearsal, then a break, then we're off!!!
