Lydian Singers: 15th March 2007

We had two weeks' notice to fill a vacancy left by a choir that pulled out of an engagement, at Hatfield House Lane Methodist Church, and we shared this opportunity with Loxley Silver Band. We had no time for a specific rehearsal, so picked a program from repertoire.

First Half (after the Silver Band)
1. Henry VIII: Pastime with good company
2. Madrigals
 -  See what a maze of error
 - April is in my mistress' face
 - Mother I will have a husband
3. Elgar
 - As torrents in summer
 - My love dwelt in a northern land
4. Modern Songs
 - Tea for two
 - Over the rainbow

Second Half (before the Silver Band)
5. Nicolai Kedrov: Otche nash (the Lord's Prayer in Church Slavonic)
6. 8-part pieces:
 - Schütz: Jauchzet dem Herrn (in two choirs)
 - Pearsall: Lay a garland (in one choir).
7. Folk Songs:
 - Matyas Seiber: Hungarian Folk Songs
 - Vaughan Williams: The lover's ghost
