Lyon 2007

Continuing our tradition of biennial tours in Europe, we travelled to Lyon from 29 March to 2 April 2007. We gave three concerts on consecutive days and sang in a mass on the Sunday evening, conducted by Ronald Corp and accompanied by organist Daniel Moult. The Lyon-based soprano, Marie-Anne Smans, joined the choir in Mozart’s Solemn Vespers.
