It's nearly Christmas so let's get festively seasonal!!
The Christmas Carol Concert was probably the most enjoyable part of the year for me at St Augustines. I don't think I felt that Xmas was really imminent until we took to the stage to blast out a rattling good set of carols.
My favourite part was during Good King Wenceslas when we would ensure that the correct emphasis was placed on the appropriate word during the line "...heat was in the very SOD" a phrase quite ironically directed at our esteemed Mr Jesset.
At this point can we please all spare a quiet minute for him.??
Right, that's enough.
Why did the orchestra always sound so crap??. 25 years on and I can say that I have never heard a group of musical instruments sound so much like caterwauling felines as did the Augustines string section.
Maybe it was the acoustics in the hall.
