Reviews

A capacity audience in James’s Church Louth were treated to an inspired concert to mark the 500th anniversary of the completion of the spire of St James’s Church, Louth.



It started with the moving ‘So they gave their bodies’ by Peter Aston to reflect on the 100th anniversary of WW1 in which the combination of orchestra with choir was quite prefect.

St James has enjoyed choral music over the last five centuries and Joseph Haydn’s, ‘The Creation’ was the principal work in the programme.  The choir engaged three excellent soloists opening with the bass Andri Björn Róbertsson as Raphael. This demanding part is full of light and shade and humour and Andri’s performance was superb, showing off his beautiful young voice to the full.

Winter Words


Louth Choral Society continued its innovative year of concerts with a programme titled ‘Winter Words’ on Sunday 24th November in St James’s Church, Louth marking anniversaries on the previous Friday of 50 years since the Assassination of President F Kennedy and 100 years since the birth of Benjamin Britten.

The concert started with the Herbert Howells unaccompanied choral piece ‘Take him, earth for cherishing’ commissioned for and first performed exactly one year after Kennedy’s assassination. This challenging work with its complex rhythmic harmonies and interlocking themes ending in 8 parts, was beautifully interpreted by the choir with all sections in fine form.
