What a stunning open rehearsal

Yesterday we had a fantastic open rehearsal at Crouch End Festival Chorus, on Elgar's The Dream of Gerontius. We had 27 guests along, many of whom are going to audition for membership. David Temple, our MD had brought along a selection of books about Elgar and the work, as well as some vintage recordings of the composer himself conducting it in the 1920s. He also read out some fascinating extracts about the piece. All in all, a super day.
