Of ChantReverie 250pxOn a wonderful spring evening in the heart of The City at St Lawrence Jewry, The Esterhazy Singers explored the lyrical and sumptuous sound world of French choral writing in the last century. The repertoire was built the sublime ‘Requiem’ by Maurice Duruflé, Messiaen’s ‘O Sacrum Convivium’, Poulenc ‘Un Soir de Neige’ and included contrasting earlier pieces by Saint-Saens and Fauré. The concert offered a unique insight into French composition and its development through the war years. Led by their new Musical Director, Andrea Brown, with the internationally renowned organist, Catherine Ennis and professional soloists, this Esterhazy Singers performance was not to be missed.

Xmas 16 smallThe Esterhazy singers performed their highly popular Christmas Concert at St Andrew’s, Holborn on Tuesday 13th December, under the baton of their new Music Director, Andrea Brown, who stepped in at short notice. The programme included Herbert Howells’ “Here is the Little Door”, and readings by Margaret Jowett, as well as 2 organ solos by James Gough, and carols for audience participation. Andrea demonstrated what an asset she will be to the choir by conducting a programme she had not chosen, to a high standard after a short rehearsal period. An emotional farewell and presentation was made to our previous MD, Esther Jones, who had been unwell leading up to the concert, but managed to come to hear us. It has been a wonderful 10 years with Esther, and we wish her, Seb and the children all the very best for the future.
