Lovely to be asked back to take tonight’s Oxford Bach Choir rehearsal for Nicholas Cleobury; having been the choir’s accompanist for two years as an undergraduate, then their Rehearsal Conductor for two years (and occasional concert conductor!), it was good to see lots of familiar faces (and an encouraging number of new ones too) after a few years away.  Their Christmas concert is a glorious programme of Bach (Eb major Magnificat, Wachet auf, Lobet den Herrn, Part 1 of the Christmas Oratorio).  Looking forward to regular choir conducting for the next few weeks as rehearsals kick off shortly with the Renaissance Singers for our Christmas concert, A Boy is Born.
