Sadly, our 18 January concert was the last time that Canton Chorus was able to perform in public before 2020’s various Covid-19 restrictions came into force. It was a well-received performance of Mozart’s (incomplete) C minor mass, preceded by a selection of choruses from part 1 of Handel’s Israel in Egypt. Orchestra De Cymru, an ensemble made up of local professional musicians, provided reliable support, and there were four excellent soloists: Alison Shone (soprano), Olivia Gomez (mezzo), Peter Wilman (tenor) and Simon Pratt (bass). Benjamin Teague played the continuo part
Canton Chorus was awarded a Lottery Fund Grant for this 2020 performance, as notified to us by Tŷ Cerdd – Music Centre Wales.
