Harvest Thanksgiving Concert

1st of December 2011

To celebrate the Harvest Festival at St Paul’s Church on 16 October, Keith Beniston brought together the choirs of St Paul’s and Holy Cross churches to perform Mozart’s Requiem Mass in D Minor. Soloists included Chipperfield’s own Rosie Clifford (soprano), Mark Denza (tenor), Christopher Wright (bass) and Helen Stanley (alto). A splendid orchestra accompanied the work and this was organised by David Gladstone and Laura Rose with Jane Faulkner as leader. Keith conducted a very uplifting performance with John Wyatt at the organ. The concert included a performance of The Watermill by Ronald Binge with David Gladstone on oboe and the orchestra giving a gentle rendition of this fine melody. Choir and congregation joined to sing that rousing traditional harvest hymn, ‘Come, ye thankful people, come’. A great celebration with wonderful music and superb performances.
