St Matthew Passion in Plymouth

I was down in Plymouth yesterday with the very talented Plymouth Philharmonic Choir and their conductor Christopher Fletcher.  The soloists were fabulous and we played to a sold out Guildhall.  This choral piece by Bach has two orchestras and two choirs and six soloists.  It is a gorgeous piece os vocal music with some beautiful arias and lovely string writing.  It was a pleasure to be a part of this concert.  I now have a week off to rest my fingers!

St Lukes Passion in Truro Cathedral

I had a lovely day yesterday down in Truro cathedral playing with the Truro Symphony Orchestra as we accompanied the Truro Choral Society.  We played St Lukes Passion which is a beautiful piece of choral music affiliated with Bach but we are not sure if he actually wrote it or not!  Nevertheless it was a wonderful concert in a stunning setting with exceptional soloists and a great orchestra.  I will be down there again very soon with the Three Spires Orchestra which I am looking forward to.
