In CMDC we always strive for perfect performances in our concerts. There is a strong feeling that we may, on this occasion, have come very close to achieving that. From our first performance of ‘This is the Moment’ through the powerful impact of ‘Men of Harlech’ and ‘Roman War Song’ to the emotional picture painted by ‘Tell My Father’ via a superbly controlled, ‘Speed Your Journey’ and culminating in the hope expressed by ‘We Rise Again’ and ‘World in Union’. Together with first class renderings of a further seven items we completed our contribution to a feast of high quality when added to the stunning performances by Helen Page (Violin) and Oliver Williams (Piano). Rhiannon Williams (MD) and Sian Davies (Accompanist) provided excellent leadership and support as did Phil Howells (Compere).
This (Sound of Wales) concert in St. Nicholas Church, Newbury organised by Rotary Club of Newbury in aid of local charities was our 4th visit to this wonderful venue.
