Our last concert

Andrew Morris Michel Dewis. Helen Brind 260

Weymouth Choral Society Easter Concert

Weymouth Choral Society heralded Easter with a splendidly uplifting concert at St Paul’s Church, Weymouth, on Saturday – the eve of Palm Sunday. The centrepiece was a performance of John Stainer’s meditation, The Crucifixion and musical director Helen Brind skilfully prepared the spiritual mood by opening with a nicely-balanced selection of Easter music, both traditional and modern.

Trumpeter Winston Leese’s stylish rendering of the Trumpet Voluntary, reassured the audience from the outset that they were in for a religious treat and the choir was in exceptionally fine voice as they performed pieces ranging from Bach and Vivaldi to Howard Goodall’s Lacrymosa, a moving setting of Mary Elizabeth Frye’s poem ‘Do not Stand at my Grave and Weep’.
