The Caritas Choir

Dr. William Reynolds, Director of Music at St. Mary’s Church, Swansea presents a total of £420 to Helen Murray, Chairman of Ty Olwen accompanied by the Rector, Canon Ian Rees and Associate Priest Helen Rees.

The Cardiff based Caritas Choir under the direction of Lindsay Gray recently performed at a concert at St. Mary’s and raised a total of £840 for Ty Olwen and the St. Mary’s Church Choral Trust.

Lindsay Gray said “All of us at Caritas were delighted to come over to St. Mary’s with its excellent acoustic, fine organ and, above all, a very warm welcome from the Director of Music, William Reynolds and from the Rector, Ian Rees. It was a particular pleasure to perform a rarely heard work, ‘Gaude, gaude Maria’ by the 16th century composer, John Sheppard, a piece in which the vocal lines push the choir to its limits, especially in respect of the soprano’ who have to sustain an astonishingly high tessitura. We hope to bring Caritas back to Swansea in the future.”
