OUR LAST CONCERT WAS ON NOVEMBER 25th
A Sea Symphony
Exmouth Choral Society have just returned to shore after an epic voyage, which climaxed on Saturday November 25th 2017 with a large-scale performance in Exeter Cathedral of Ralph Vaughan Williams' A Sea Symphony.
A combined choir of over 200 voices was drawn from the Exmouth, Exeter and Wellington Choral Societies.
All three Societies have Laurence Blyth as Musical Director.
The Exeter Symphony Orchestra was conducted by Brian Northcott.
The first half of the concert was conducted by Brian Northcott and opened with
Vaughan Williams’ The Old Hundredth Psalm (arr. Douglas),
followed by Arnold Bax’s symphonic poem November Woods.
Laurence Blyth took the baton for Vaughan Williams’ Symphony No.1 A Sea Symphony,
with Alison Burnett and Paul Sheehan as soloists,
and the St Peter’s Singers of Exeter Cathedral as the ethereal semi-chorus in the final movement.
There was a retiring collection in support of the RNLI.
