Aussies Sing at Haddenham

Australian Choir

The singing at St Mary's Parish Church on Sunday 28th July was led by a choir from Australia!

'Spirit of Australia' is a touring group from The South West Opera Company, based at Bunbury in Western Australia. The singers, who have been in this country for about ten days, have already given several concerts in the South West of England.

On Saturday evening they presented a varied programme of choruses, solos and ensembles, largely selected from the operatic repertoire, to a most appreciative audience at St Nicholas Church in Cuddington.

The following morning they led the hymns and sang two anthems during the communion at St Mary's Church Haddenham, finishing the service with a particularly toe tapping and swinging number by Keith Hampton — 'Praise His Holy Name'. The congregation responded warmly with a prolonged round of applause.

The singers concluded their tour of this area with a further concert at Long Crendon Parish Church on Sunday evening, 28th July.
