The fourth Aperitif Recital took place at St Mary's Church on Thursday 11th October. This early evening musical salon is becoming ever more popular. The audience is greeted with wine and soft drinks on arrival and then make their way to the canapé table, and from there they take wine and food to a seat in the church.
Wine and canapés are enjoyed as they listen to a thirty five minute organ recital given by leading young organists from Oxford University.
This Thursday the pattern changed slightly. The audience, of almost one hundred people, enjoyed a forty five minute choral recital given by the Chiltern Chamber Choir from Berkhamsted. The singers had recently returned from a recital tour in Italy.
Their accompanist, Jonathan Lee, sometime organ scholar of Sidney Sussex College Cambridge, also gave an outstanding performance of the first movement of Edward Elgar's organ sonata.
