Sunday 12th update… At Notre Dame
Saturday 11th update… Soon to rehearse in Notre Dame.
Friday 10th update
Wow! What a concert! Everyone pulled together to make a glorious sound at St Germain des Pres with organist Paul Carr and conductor Adrian Lucas.
Many a City Choir chorister sitting in the small garden next to St Germain des Pres… Eating a picnic… Avoiding the pigeons…
Another resonant church, but this time the gothic architecture seems to focus and blend the sound more than at La Madeleine.
Thurs 9th update
A successful and well-attended free concert today at the impressive Parthenon-inspired La Madeleine church. An enormously resonant building! Plenty of applause from the appreciative audience.
Wed 8th update.
Well, the choir has arrived by Eurostar and settled into our hotel. Having sought a tasty evening meal, and the odd glass or two, we are girding our loins for our first concert tomorrow afternoon at the Madeleine church.
