Tickets are on sale now for our performance of J.S. Bach’s magnificent Mass in B minor, one of the supreme achievements in the classical repertoire, on the 18th May at Christ Church, Silchester Road, St. Leonards.(TN37 6GL). The Mass was probably never performed during Bach’s life time, it largely disappeared during the 18th century and was ‘rediscovered’ in the early 19th century. Today this monumental work which, unusually, encompasses both the Lutheran and Roman Catholic traditions is acknowledged to be a musical mountain for any choir to climb but one that is totally rewarding for both singers and audience.
The first meeting of the year took place on Thursday 17 January in The White Hart, Netherfield. A good turnout of members despite the cold weather and Ann Stone our hostess welcomed our speakers representing ‘Emmaus, the homeless charity’. Solidarity – helping others in greater need – is a cornerstone of what Emmaus does, already giving approaching £10,000 worth of furniture and basic household goods annually to local people in need. The organisation now has two vans for house clearances, collections and deliveries. Their Charity Superstore is situated in Whitworth Road (to the rear of the SEAT garage) where new stock arrives weekly. Opening hours are Tuesday to Saturday, 10am – 4pm. One of the speakers told of his ‘riches to rags story, losing a good job, a good relationship and eventually becoming homeless. Since getting involved with Emmaus he has regained his self-respect, became a Companion worker at the site, which has expanded with rooms to offer and a target size of 23 beds, and is now in a managerial position - life has begun again. The Companions work in return for a bed and food and a small allowance, repairing and cleaning the donated goods and furniture which is always welcome including white goods, bric-a-brac and clothing. Sainsbury’s supplies short dated produce which would otherwise be thrown away, ensuring the workers are well fed! Do go and support this important project by paying the store a visit or phoning 755111 to donate.
