Schola Concert in the Brandenburg Festival and visit of David Hill.

On Friday 7 February the Schola sang a concert as part of the Brandenburg Choral Festival. The concert was held in the beautiful stetting of the chapel of King's College London.

The programme was a collection of music spanning more than five hundred years from Palestrina to Jonathan Dove, all of which involved settings of the Psalms of David. 

The centre piece of the concert was a performance of the famous Miserere by Allegri, including the repeating high c for the treble soloist.

The Schola will sing this work again on Ash Wednesday for the School's liturgies on that important day in the Church's calendar.

In preparation for the concert the choir was very pleased to be able to work with leading choral conductor David Hill, who visited the School on the previous Monday to work on the programme with us. David led a wonderful workshop on the music and greatly helped the choir with a number of aspects of its performance and general technique.
