Thank you to all those singers from across the region who attended our Singing Day on 9 February on The Canterbury Pilgrims by George Dyson. Particular thanks to our good friend Keith Orrell, Musical Director of the William Byrd Singers and the Liverpool Welsh Choral Union, who has led so many Barnby Singing Days, for so expertly introducing us to the many highlights of this delightful work, and to our guests, accompanist Robert Woods and tenor Philip O’Connor, for their invaluable contribution.
Appreciation also to the individual members of the Barnby Choir who worked so hard to make the day a success.
