So, the Creation project ended on Wednesday - and what a concert it was! Schola Cantorum was very well received by concert-goers, OAE sponsors and OAE players alike (not famous for gushing really, so it was high praise indeed!), and the conductor (Adam Fischer) was very pleased.
Now that it's over, I can turn my attention to other things - Finals to start with. My timetable is now sorted and I have plenty of seminars, tutorials and lectures to keep me busy.
Musically, there are also some exciting things to focus on. In February I'll be taking part as a soloist and chorus member of Bach's B Minor Mass and Matthäuspassion (in the second chorus, which is my favourtie!)- I can't wait!
I'll also be doing a recital at Somerville College, Oxford, with the guitarist Giles Masters. He's a fantastic guitarist with whom I worked on Dido and Aeneas last November, and I'm really looking forward to doing this project with him. I'll be doing a great programme of songs by Dowland and Purcell, so be sure to come!
However, I'll have to hold off the singing for a little while as I am now full of a
rather nasty cold and my throat is swollen.
Until next time...
