On Friday 28th March, Hannah Stone, Official Harpist to HRH The Prince of Wales joined the choir for choir for an exhilarating evening of harp, choral and organ works that simply lit up the Chapel Royal. The Chaplain began by thanking HRH The Prince of Wales for making Miss Stone available to give a concert as part of a major fundraising campaign to support the training of local school boys as Chapel Royal choristers. The audience was entranced by the beauty and fluidity of Miss Stone's playing with many commenting how versatile the instrument truly is. From the sublime Debussy's 'Clair de Lune' to the dancing rhythms of 'St Asaph's Dance ' by Karl Jenkins. A special guest was the celebrated composer Patrick Hawes who composed the beautiful final choral piece 'The Waters of Love'. It was very exciting for the choristers to perform the piece for the composer and to meet him afterwards. Hannah Stone was presented with a bouquet of spring flowers and said : 'I really enjoyed collaborating with the Hampton Court choristers in such a beautiful venue. The opportunity that the Choral Foundation gives to these young singers is invaluable so it is a real pleasure to have been involved in this fundraising concert and play my part in helping develop young talent.
