Joyous 12th joint concert with Albatros

AlbatrosLMVC.JPGThe magnificent Catholic church in Old Pekela was the setting for the latest and 12th joint concert with Albatros on Saturday 28th April.
The large, knowledgeable and appreciative audience included the chairman of the National Association of Choirs who was on holiday in the area.

Most of the party from Louth had spent much of Friday in the unrivalled Keukenhof gardens.  The weather for the whole weekend was unseasonably warm and bright.  This formed the back-drop to a renewal of friendships and splendid parties fitted in around the concert.

The pieces sung by the combined choirs were: Haec Dies, an arrangement for two choirs by a Dutch composer, Jacobus Handl; and “I’ll stay with you ’til the morning” a vocal arrangement by Anton Stulp, musical director of the Albatros, of Mozart’s clarinet concerto.

Illustrated on the left is LMVC singing “Old Time Religion”.  Below, the combined choirs are being introduced by the Albatros announcer.
