Review of our most recent concert: Music for a summer’s evening

Radlett Choir has for several years now given a summer concert that, among their regular audience members has become known as the “Pudding Concert”.  The reason for this is that, during the interval, the choir members serve an array of delicious desserts to the audience. The venue for this concert has, on several occasions, been the Karl König Hall at
Delrow House in Letchmore Heath and this was the case on Saturday.

This summer’s concert programme was a delightful mix of celebratory anthems, starting with a spirited performance of Laudate Jehovam Omnes Gentes by Telemann, a charming
selection of folk songs arranged by the choir’s conductor, Alex Flood and several well-loved pieces including Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring by J.S. Bach and Ave Verum Corpus by W. A. Mozart.

Despite Covid’s best efforts to thwart proceedings by laying low one of the soloists for the first item, all went ahead as planned when one of the choir members, Alex Down, stepped into the breach at very short notice and I can honestly say that no one would have known, had they not been told, that he was a last-minute understudy. The evening’s other soloists, Katy McAdam and Nicholas Butler, also gave assured and poised performances.


Saturday’s audience was treated, not only to some entertaining singing, of a standard much higher than might be expected of an amateur choir but also the captivating playing of the
Keats String Quartet, whose contributions were a wonderful addition to the evening; in the first half, two movements from Haydn’s Emperor Quartet and in the second, arrangements of
Danish folk songs, with lively rhythms and unusual and attractive harmonies. Altogether a truly uplifting evening of musical and culinary pleasure.


If you missed Saturday’s concert and would like to hear Radlett Choir, they will be taking part, along with several other local choirs, in the Saint Cecilia Concert at St. Albans Abbey
on October 15 th with a full performance of Haydn’s Creation, accompanied by St. Albans Symphony Orchestra.
