Jauchzet, frohlocket!

I am still floating ten feet from the ground after our performance in Leeds Town Hall on Saturday night of Bach's masterpiece, the Christmas Oratorio. You can keep Handel's Messiah!

I was well outside my comfort zone with this as I had missed three rehearsals due to that virus (I was in danger of not being allowed to take part) and the German is very hard.

But, Oh Wow!

We (The Leeds Philharmonic Chorus HERE) were joined by the Manchester Camerata HERE, probably the best exponents of Baroque music in England and the outcome was pure magic. Such energy.
