Meghann Brook reads the latest roll of honour

The talent at the Abbey

Luckily for me, the girls in the choir had lots of achievements during the course of last term, so I won’t have to write very much for this update! I will, however, just outline our exciting plans for the term.

Our singing began again on the first Sunday of October, Harvest Festival, a service we all enjoy. We sang Choral Evensong on Saturday 14 October and in a new departure this year, we will be leading the Eucharist on All Saints’ Day on 1 November, for which we have been learning the Christchurch Mass by Malcolm Archer. I hope you will all be able to come and hear its début performance.

Now to those achievements from the Trinity Term:

Laura Brown Grade 5 Saxophone Honours
Hannah Goodwin Grade 2 Bassoon Distinction
Laura Hammond Grade 2 Flute Pass
Rachel Howe Grade 5 Piano Merit
Rosie Larard-Young Grade 2 Violin Pass
Sarah Lewis Grade 4 Piano Merit
Megan Lister Grade 4 Flute Pass
Jenny Phillips Grade 7 Clarinet Pass
Jenna Williams Grade 7 Piano Merit
ditto Grade 6 Clarinet Merit

Congratulations also to Jenna for gaining a place in both the Hampshire Youth Wind Orchestra and the Southampton Pops Orchestra on the Flute and Piccolo.

Lizzie Collier GCSE 13
Lizzie Hammond GCSE 10
Isabel Noble GCSE 10

Congratulations to all of the above people. Surely these wonderful results can only help to enhance the quality of music produced in Romsey Abbey.
