Recital of German Leider and English Song

A calm Saturday lunch-time in St.Peter’s and an intimate set of people gather to listen to a long standing friend deliver a ‘Recital of German Leider and English Song’.

Verity Quarmby was Choir Director at Huddersfield Parish Church during and after her university years. Now a teacher, as well as mother to three young boys, she is embarking on this new path, accompanied by Richard, Verity’s husband, at the piano.

The programme:

Robert Schumann: Frauenliebe und Leben Op.42

Gustav Holst: The Heart Worships

Felix Mendelssohn: Two Arias from Elijah: O Rest in the Lord and Woe Unto Them

Edward Elgar: Sea Pictures Op.37: In Heaven, Sabbath Morning and Where Coral Lie

Bridgette, Verity’s music teacher, spoke of the wonderful sounds of the recital and the acoustic of St. Peter’s .

Verity on completion of the programme was relieved but happy with her performance and the audience enjoyed the music of this calm Saturday lunch-time in St.Peter’s.
