FOUNTAINS BY FLOODLIGHT 6 OCTOBER

Author: naillig

Enter the visitors centre at Fountains Abbey after sunset wind your way down the twisted path through the  trees, catch a glimpse of a hooded monk and hear the  haunting sound of Vespers hovering over the spectacle of the statuesque ruin. This was the experience members of BPC enjoyed on Saturday 6 October as we joined Ordsall Acapella singers to take part in Fountains by Floodlight held on weekends from 6 October through to 3 November, with a different choir performing each night. 

We regailed a packed audience with an hours performance full of seasoned favourites like  I’ve Got Rythm, Here Comes The Sun, Say a little Prayer and newer pieces such as Bridge Over Troubled  Water, The Blessing and Sway.. 

The whole evening was  aided seemlessly by the National Trust  staff there to direct performers and public alike.  Many thanks to Jeff Borradaile for organising such a fun programme and Ordsall Acapella for inviting us to join them,  at what was their concert.

 A magical evening!
