On a beautiful Summer’s evening on a Monday night, we had our closing event of the group’s year when we said goodbye to one of our singers, Alistair, as he moved back to the UK for his work.

The Jersey Academy of Music kindly welcomed us to use their premises where we were able to sing in the chapel and concert room and enjoy a light supper together using the kitchen facilities.

The following pieces were sung;

Wondrous Love

Parce Domine

Ubi Caritas

Veni Sancte Spiritus
