The concert was held in Christchurch cathedral and we had a good sized and appreciative audience.
The sounds really reverberate in the cathedral and we took advantage of this. We had musicians playing trombone, trumpet, and French horn. Wow! Bounce that off the walls! Other musicians played the flute, violin, piano and organ. The sounds were fabulous.
We really enjoyed singing two North American spirituals, Ain't No Rock Gonna Shout For Me and My Good Lord's Done Been Here. Most of the pieces were from contemporary composers which seemed to bring a fresh influence. I like Jenkins's version of Pie Jesu the best.
This you tube clip is not us, but it showcases Pie Jesu nicely. It sounds this good no matter who sings it.
