After lunch Annie led the rehearsals, supported by Devon (Lazarus), Richard (Jesus) and Jonathan (baddies, backing track, team leader). Fran from the CMM choir was there too, and she filled in various solos until Ann (Martha) and Helen (Mary) were able to be there later in the day.
The choir were brilliant - they knew it well or picked it up quickly. Not counting CMM soloists there was 1 tenor and 1 bass - but they held their own amazingly, particularly in the male only songs 6 and 11.
Before the performance the choir and CMM team shared a wonderful meal together, cooked by the church's catering team.
In the evening the performance was really well attended, including a number of people from the retirement complex next door to the church. Devon sang a prophecy which was claimed afterwards, and Jonathan spoke really well at the end of the performance.
It was a wonderful occasion - many thanks to Olive and all her supporters.
