Beaminster Gallery Quire

It was a joy once again to welcome the Beaminster Gallery Quire as they gave their Christmas ‘concert with readings’ last night.  The various voice-parts in the music were enhanced by  placement around the museum’s gallery and the sound in the auditorium (otherwise known as the main exhibition hall) was a delight. We learned about the custom of ‘Ashen Faggots’, laughed at a fiddler with neither bow nor knowledge of which way is up and then partook of thoroughly toothsome mincepies and mulled wine courtesy of our inhouse event team. Especial mention must go to Curator Brian Earl who stepped up to the demand for an organist and ably assisted the choir in We Singers Make Bold complete with the 1820s complications of ‘sounding the tune’ in C, or was it F, or even G?  We hope very much to see the Quire back again next year.
