Summer Music @ Annabel's

We had another lovely summer music soiree last night, this time hosted by Annabel. Once again there was a feast of delicious food to be enjoyed after some musical fun. We delved into the depths of the music boxes and pulled out some old favourites, some of which hadn't seen the light of day since we performed them in a concert 5 or 6 years ago! There was also discussion of where to promote & advertise our group using the wonderful posters Penny has designed for us...and I'm going to try and make the blog more 'Googlebot' friendly, so you may notice some changes to the layout over the next few days - I promise I'm not doing it to confuse you!

Anyway, here's what we played last night:

  • 'Fiddler on the Roof' Medley - Harnick & Bock (Arr. van der Goot)
  • Theme from 'Blackadder' - Goodall (Arr. H. Brammer)
  • 'Brandenburg Concerto No. 2 - Allegro Assai' - J. S. Bach (Arr. H. Brammer)
  • 'My Bonny Boy' from 'English Folk Song Suite' - Vaughan Williams (Arr. H. Brammer)
  • 'Sicilienne' - Faure (Arr. H. Brammer)
  • 'Tirolese' from 'Soirees Musicales' - Britten/Rossini (Arr. H. Brammer)
  • 'Karelia - Suite' - Sibelius (Arr. van der Goot)
  • 'Hallelujah Chorus' - Handel (Arr. H. Brammer)
  • 'Capriol Suite' - Warlock (Arr. . Brammer)
