At our November meeting, after a quick blast of the main title music from the movie the Sea Hawk for Chris, we listened to voices. Jose Carreras introduced the programme by providing the solo tenor voice to the Creole Mass written by Ariel Ramires from Argentina, we also heard him later in tenor arias from ‘Turandot’ and ‘Tosca. Johanna Connolly and Dawn Upshaw provided the female contribution, the former with songs from Eric Corngold, Kurt Weill, John Ireland and Benjamin Britten and the latter, an American soprano new to the group, dipped further into the Kurt Weill catalogue with two songs from his Broadway hit, ‘Lady in the Dark’. There is no meeting in December and we will meet again on January 27th, 2017. Geoff Moth.
