Beverley Concert

One of the new pictures printed in the Beverley program!
Thanks to Jimmy Riddle for posting it!

Kavana, Henry, Matthew R-A, Luke, Carlos & Sammy (more cool sunglasses).  :D

10:00 p.m. Per Jimmy Riddle, the turnout for the concert was fantastic, and the church was nearly full. The singing was exceptional, and it was one of the best concerts he's ever attended! The sound technicians did a great job; he could hear everyone's diction so clearly. 

Deep Peace was his favorite "in terms of the whole choir nailing it. Stefan's solo was exceptional and the harmonies were interwoven as one. It was pretty much a flawless execution." He said Carlos sang his Ave Verum solo with great confidence and clarity. Stefan and Jakob were good together on How Shall I Sing That Majesty. 

He noticed, as we had in Atlanta, that even though Josh sings his part in Time with Ralph and Alex, you can "still hear him clearly in his trademark voice. It's lower no doubt, but it's still uniquely him. Congrats to him for still being able to sing solo in a treble dominated setup." That makes me very happy to hear!  :)

9:30 p.m. Per Yorkie, it was a good concert with a good crowd of around 300+. No little newbies were at this concert, and Matthew Jansen had to leave the stage after the first song with some sort of eye problem that Mrs. Geraghty helped him with. Ralph was still struggling with a cough, but got through all his solos OK.

Stefan and Ralph did Mysterium from the front instead of Stefan walking down the center aisle. For Eternal Light, Stefan and Ralph sang the first 2 verses together but so closely that it sounded like one voice. Then Stefan sang the last verse by himself.

And again NO PHOTOS after the concert. The boys are staying in Beverley tonight.

7:00 a.m. Now it's on to the last UK Autumn concert! Beverley is a 3-hour train ride away from London, but Libera will probably take a bus or coach there. The concert starts at 7:30 p.m. in the Beverley Minster.
