Today’s concert was unexpected, in many ways. I haven’t sung in the church before, but we have performed for the same organisation in Blieskastel (and will return there next year) so we knew the people who were looking after us – but when we drove into a non-descript residential area the signs were not all there for a decent venue.
How wrong we were – the church was a modern building and unprepossessing from the outside, but once inside things changed. Beautiful stained glass windows, soaring acoustics, and an audience who listened intently as we went through music by Lassus, Palestrina, Durufle and Reger (and that was just the first half). Some days everything seems to come together, and this was one of those days.
Even our archivist, who follows us on tour in Germany and is a constant source of support, said that it was one of the most enjoyable concerts he’s attended in a long while – praise indeed from a man who has been in close contact with The King’s Singers for over 30 years. There’s not much more to say than that, really; we always love to perform, but as with any other profession you have good days and bad. This was a good day!
