On Friday, the school continued their commemoration of Remembrance with an evening concert, held in the Chapel. Featuring readings, solo instrumental works, vocal repertoire and items sung by the Chapel Choir, everyone agreed it was a varied and beautifully delivered event. The Chapel choir sang with subtlety and nuance with the emotion of movements from the Faure Requiem contrasting with the moving settings of Parry’s Crossing the Bar and Guest’s For the Fallen. Other items included songs from Alexander and Joanna L’Estrange’s Freedom, whilst there were notable instrumental performances from the String Quartet playing Puccini’s highly charged Crisantemi, a bagpipe solo alongside two piano solos from Samuel and Thomas. Throughout the concert, a series of readings were eloquently and sensitively delivered by a range of pupils across the full spectrum of the school. Finally, there was the opportunity for solo vocal performance with a number of songs by Gurney, Finzi, Butterworth, Quilter and Rutter completing the programme.
