Anne Fridal with a Crossword!

Crossword AKA Octangle
Crossword AKA Octangle

Anne Fridal, the Dramatic Soprano, made a return to Louth and sang at the Philips Conoco Room at Louth Library with Octangle. It was a brief visit and concert with Anne performing one operatic and two populist pieces while Octangle performed a rich mixed melody. Richard Keeble, our new chairman, introduced Anne and launched her CD which is of the concert that the full choir performed with her last year in St James’s. John Hards introduced the Octangelists as Crossword explaining that Octangle, an octet, was born out of Quadwrangle, the quartet, but that Graham was ill and so tonight they were Crossword, one down and seven across (some said that Septicaemia might also be apt). In fact John was an eloquent hoot all the way through with his witty and humorous introductions. All in all a very light-hearted and pleasant evening.
