Hello Hallé!

Thanks to the wonderful Hallé Orchestra for a splendid concert on Saturday night. It's not often a British audience stands up (for me, at least) but they did and it was a rousing end to the evening.

It's a rare joy to sing some of those orchestrations with such a large orchestra. Robert Farnon's Garden In The Rain for example has some of the most glorious string writing.

If you missed it, I'll be doing it again with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic on New Year's Eve. Come and celebrate with us!
