What a pleasure it was to welcome Cecilia McDowall to a recent rehearsal and get the composer's inside track on her Magnificat in which McDowall sets the familiar text to contemporary harmonies that hark back in an ingenious way to plainchant.  Hertford Choral is performing the piece together with Mozart's Requiem at its concert on Saturday 11th November at All Saints, Hertford.

Each year HCS has nominated charities for which funds are raised at our Christmas concert.  For Christmas 2016 these were the East and North Herts branch of the national charity Motor Neurone Disease Association, and locally-based charity Demand.  Both charities were nominated by choir members, and over £1,200 was raised at our Christmas Celebration concert.

HCS Musical Director, Derek Harrison, is pictured presenting Marilyn Dodson from MNDA with a cheque, together with Linda Adams who nominated the charity.
