School Choir 1964

29 Oct 2023
Written by Jon Hayter
OC Memories

The school choir under Mr Morgan once sang  "The passion of Christ"! An oratorio by Arthur Somervell it took an hour and a quarter to sing it in St Dunstans Church with guest soprano (there were only boys in 1964!)  and bass soloists from Cambridge. The whole thing was recorded onto a 12 inch long playing vinyl album of which a limited amount were pressed. I have long since lost my copy when my parents moved and didn't keep it. And I have never heard it performed since. I am forlornly hoping some less careless OC still has a copy which they might be able to make a digital copy of and send to me. Here's hoping.
