St Andrew’s Church Spring Concert
There was musical quality aplenty at Bolham Church last night and, arriving early myself, I stood outside this elegant, substantial building and thought of Philip Larkin’s ‘Churchgoing’:
‘A serious house on serious earth it is,
In whose blent air all our compulsions meet,
Are recognized, and robed as destinies.’
And inside, when the concert got going, there was plenty to appreciate and to contemplate that was mostly serious and seriously good. The choir, composed of Year 8 children, sang impressively with control, sensitivity and empathy for a range of songs from different musical genres and cultures; the soloists held the stage with confidence, enthusiasm and a sense of sheer enjoyment and the readers offered thoughtful and nuanced interpretations of eclectic texts which complemented the musical items. Well done to Margaret Roberson. Top drawer!
