Golgotha & Witchert Chorale

This weekend the Witchert Chorale have greatly enjoyed a return visit by the Golgatha Kantorei, a choir from Berlin.

Golgatha made their first visit in May 2012 and Witchert Chorale enjoyed a reciprocal visit to Berlin in June 2013. This time the two choirs performed a well received concert together in St Nicholas church Cuddington.

There has been much feasting and singing throughout the weekend and also a visit to Waddesdon Manor and a day trip to London with a guided walk.

The photograph shows the two choirs by the new oak tree in Haddenham, a gift from the Berliners symbolising the growing friendship between us. (Click on the image to see an enlarged version).

The Witchert Chorale are looking forward to visiting Berlin again soon and will be trying to think of an equally imaginative present in the meantime!
