We meet on the third Tuesday of each month at 10am. In October, Amanda presented the programme of music. We began the morning with the ‘Symphony No 1 (Titan)’ by Mahler (1860 – 1911). This is a monumental work lasting an hour – it was great to have the opportunity to hear it uninterrupted. After coffee we listened to J S Bach’s ‘Chaconne’ played by David le Page (violin). This was followed by ‘Dum transisset Sabbatum’ by J Taverner (1495-1545) and we finished with the ‘Concerto No 3 in F Major (Autumn)’ by Vivaldi. The next meeting is on Tuesday 21st November, when Jan will present her choice of music. Peter Ellement.
