2006 Rikkyo Chapel Choir England Tour ~ 2006年立教大学諸聖徒礼拝堂聖歌隊イギリスツアー

This past February I escorted the chapel choir of Rikkyo University All Saints Chapel to England. We sang a concert, two services of Evensong, and jointly with St. Catharine's College Choir, Cambridge at a special Evesong in their chapel. The main events of the tour were as follows:

Feb. 25: concert at St. George's Catholic Church, Worcester (Elgar's church). We sang 4 Elgar motets, other pieces from our normal repertoire, and several Japanese and Korean folksongs. The mayor of Worcester attended. (Photo by T. H. Kondo)

March 1: coaching with Dr. Edward Wickham, Choirmaster at St. Catharine's College Chapel. Dr. Wickham worked with us on White's Christe qui lux, et es dies, and Gibbons' O clap your hands (which we sang jointly with the St. Catharine's Choir March 2 at a service in their chapel).

March 3: Evensong at Keeble College Chapel, Oxford. The lush acoustics of this chapel were probably the most satisfying of all the places in which we performed. (Photo by T. H. Kondo)
