ECHO sang Choral Evensong at St Martin’s in the Fields last Monday. The music included the Rose responses, the Magnificat and Nunc Dimittis in B flat by Stanford and Purcell’s Forgive Us Lord Our Offences. Mr Tom Williams, one of our visiting singing teachers, conducts the choral scholars at St Martin’s and he was there to welcome us.
ECHO, conducted by Mr Mason, sang the service beautifully in the lovely St Martin’s acoustic and this year, thankfully, the bagpiper out in Trafalgar Square was nowhere to be heard. The Vicar of St Martin’s said how impressed he was.
There is another chance to hear ECHO at the United Westminster Schools’ concert at the Gresham Centre at 7.00pm on Tuesday 26th March. They will be singing alongside groups from the other schools in the Foundation and also the internationally famous Voces 8 group who have worked with them. The event is not ticketed - just come to the door.
Mr Gregory (Director of Music)
