Greenstede Singers concert, Peredur Arts Centre October 1st

The Greenstede Singers gave their inaugural concert last Saturday at the Peredur Arts Centre in East Grinstead to a delighted audience. The concert included modern arrangements of traditional folk songs such as My Boy Billy, Pretty Pollie Pillicoate, Eriskay Lovelilt, The Ash Grove and settings of well-known poems - Five Eyes, To Daffodils, It was a Lover and his Lass and Linden Lea.
There were delightful solos from Glynda Rendell and Marion and daughter, Kathleen.
One of the favourite items of the evening, raising a cheer from the audience, was the Nun's chorus from the operetta 'Casanova'. Another favourite was Bob Chilcott's haunting setting of an anonymous 16C poem - the Lily and the Rose.
The concert ended in more popular style, with Leonard Cohen's 'Hallelujah', Bernstein's 'I Feel Pretty' and Bob Dylan's 'To Make You Feel My Love'.
Money raised from the sale of raffle tickets was donated to the East Grinstead Christmas Lights. Chairman, Melvyn Phillips, said that this support from the community was much appreciated.
