On Tuesday we rehearsed for the last time before the current Government Covid lockdown. Under Richard Laing's enthusiastic direction we sang through all the choruses in the Rossini Petite Messe Solennelle. Great fun was had by all!

The four socially-distanced rehearsals we have managed since restarting will stand us in good stead when we finally come to perform. However, more work is needed for us to give a creditable performance of the work and this, coupled with the challenging logistics involved in accomodating choir and audience in socially-distanced fashion in Dorchester Abbey, has forced us to postpone again the concert planned for 5th December.

It is impossible to overstate the joy we have felt in singing together again. As soon as we are allowed to re-form we will do!
