Cantique de Jean Racine

The West Cork Choral Singers are shown above performing this haunting piece by Gabriel Fauré to a large and appreciative audience at Abbeystrewery Church in Skibbereen on Sunday 2 April. The evening, entitled ‘Encore’, also featured work by Johannes Brahms, Antonin Dvořák and Karl Jenkins.

Annabel Adams on piano and Justin Grounds on violin provided musical backing. Justin’s solo violin accompaniment of the ‘Benedictus’ from The Armed Man was especially moving.

Rosario, Diana, Annabel and Claire in happy mood after an excellent evening of music. It was, sadly, Rosario’s last evening with the choir as she, and her family, are returning shortly to Spain. Rosario provided laughter, great mussel cookery and castanet playing to the choir during her stay in West Cork. A fond adiós from all at the West Cork Choral Singers.
