Music is definitely back at Holy trinity, Gosport, and what a ‘come back’ concert we had this afternoon! It was a superb programme: just right for the time of year and beautiful setting. We enjoyed every piece, from Delius to Vaughan Williams, Herbert Howells to Mussorgsky, Grieg to Massenet, we were delighted, and transported to images of cascading streams, gambolling lambs in pastoral scenes, larks ascending, folk dancing in Norway – and what a terrific way finish, with ‘Meditation’ from the opera ‘Thais’ by Jules Massenet. Perfect! We thanked Fumi Otsuki and Sarah Kershaw for their superb concert and for setting the bar so high for the remainder of the musical year! It was so wonderful too, to welcome back our lovely audience. We have missed sharing the music with you and today was an important step forward. The next organ recital is on Monday 19th at 1pm with John Collins and the August concert, on Sunday 1st at 3.30pm, will be our Annual Organ Celebration with Charles Francis, from the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire – more to follow!
