1.10 p.m.

Brecon Cathedral

We were invited to perform this concert by Stephen Power, currently Assistant Director of Music at Brecon and one-time pupil of Philip Colls. We selected a range of both religious and secular pieces, mainly by British composers, to make a varied lunchtime concert. Those pieces are listed below. The cathedral has a very good acoustic, so we enjoyed performing there, and the audience very satisfyingly appreciative.
