— PRAGUE                          May 2009  —

This, the choir’s first venture overseas, was a five-day tour with two concerts, the first of which was on the day after we arrived, in the Church of St. John the Baptist in Lysá nad Labem, about 50km from Prague. It was a beautiful old church, built between 1719 and 1741, with an organ dating from 1774 and an acoustic to die for.  The local people were so pleased that we had made the effort to come outside Prague to give a concert, which added to our great pleasure in singing there.

— FRANCE (Loire Valley)      June 2012  —

Three concerts were given, each to capacity audiences. The first was in the beautiful village of St. Gildas-de-Rhuys, near Vannes (historically associated with Pierre Abelard, twelfth-century radical theologian and ill-fated lover of Héloise), where we sang in the lovely Eglise Abbatiale. The second concert, which we shared with Le Choeur François Rabelais, took place in the private chapel of Le Château de Chavigny, in Lerné, near Chinon. The final concert, which we shared with Ensemble Vocal Hémiole, took place in L'Eglise Abbatiale, La Chapelle-Saint-Mesmin, near Orléans.
