In June we were fortunate to be visited by two prominent choir directors who were passing through Sydney: Michael Leighton Jones and David Hill. Michael, who was until recently Director of Music at Trinity College, Melbourne, conducted the Choir for Choral Eucharist and Evensong on Sunday 26 June. Two current members of the Choir sang under him at Trinity College, and it was a pleasure for all to work with him on this occasion. Then on Wednesday 29 June David Hill – Professor (Adjunct) of Choral Conducting at Yale University and Chief Conductor of The BBC Singers – conducted Evensong and an open rehearsal. At Evensong he put the Choir through their paces with Walton’s challenging anthem The Twelve. Then at the open rehearsal he worked with both the Choir and the St James’ Singers in the Dvořák Mass in D which was recently sung at the Patronal Festival.
