You will read elsewhere about The Choir of St James’ very successful European tour.And many of you will have heard some of the repertoire in their very fine concert, Songs of Discovery, as well as having heard about their experiences at the subsequent cocktail party. So I will not add to that here, except to offer thanks to a number of people who made it all possible. Of course, we are so very grateful to those who supported the tour financially and practically. But I also want to thank those who made possible the continuation of the music programme here in Sydney while the Choir was away. Thank you to Sam Allchurch for ably conducting both the St James’ Singers and The St James’ Consort during this time, and particularly for inspiring the Singers to give their best during a very full month. And thank you to the Singers themselves for working hard to learn and perform a wide variety of music. Thank you to Ian McCahon for administrative help in addition to his singing. Thank you to sopranos Josie Ryan and Hester Wright, cellist Rachel Scott, the 9am cantors, and the St James’ Consort for their contributions to the music during this time.
