Music and Strawberries

On Saturday (13th July), we were pleased to host The Tuesday Singers for their annual summer concert in Chapel.

 

The evening contained a variety of music.  The concert started with classical pieces, some more well-known than others, and members of the choir Tony Mason (violin) and Tony Cross (bass) also performed solos of classical music.  After the interval, there was a section of music by William Byrd, as the choir are preparing to sing Byrd's Mass for Four Voices at St Oswald's Lythe, in September.  There was a more modern and humorous feel to the end of the second half, as Les Scott read "Mrs Beamish" by Richard Stilgoe, to great effect, and the audience were asked to participate in "Sumer is icumen in".

 

The concert raised £240 which will go towards the work of the Vocations School in Sunyani.

In the meantime, the strawberries have been ripening and ripening in the garden.  We are enjoying them at almost every meal at the moment.  Clearly this year we have had just the right balance of rain and sun, and we're sure that having the bees on site has also been a bonus for the bumper crop.  This is good news for anyone coming to the Drop In Afternoon on the 27th, as there will be plenty of preserves available.
