Schola Cantorum were on top form for their performance at Cromer Church

Schola Cantorum hit the ground running with a concert in the first week of the Summer Term. Cromer has an impressive church which served as a fine venue for what was the final Schola community concert of the year and a farewell concert for the Year 13s. For those who had braved the cold and wet, the programme celebrating Sir Charles Villiers Stanford’s centenary, sung superbly by the choir, provided a memorable evening of choral singing. Favourites such as Stanford Magnificat in C, Beati Quorum Via, Parry I was Glad, and Wood O Thou the Central Orb were joined by Stanford For Lo I Raise Up and Magnificat & Nunc Dimittis in G among others and the Crickets performance of Sullivan The Long Day Closes and O Love I Wrong Thee Much. While mention must be made of assured solos from Jimmy T (including his performance on the organ), Ruby S, Tamsin S, Milan H and Zinnia-Claire B, the choir were clearly enjoying themselves and were on top form. Thanks too to Martin Holford, our School organist, for his accompaniment on the splendid church organ.
