Fire and Tempest at Wells Cathedral

 

There will be magnificent tempest and earthquake, spiritual battle and the voice of God at Wells Cathedral on 30th March, when Wells Cathedral Oratorio Society and the English Symphony Orchestra present Felix Mendelssohn’s Elijah. 
 
The Oratorio Society will be joined by soloists Elizabeth Atherton (soprano), Katy Bray (mezzo soprano), Peter Auty (tenor) and Ben McAteer (bass) for this, one of the most important choral works of the nineteenth century in the great tradition of Bach and Handel. The Conductor is Matthew Owens.
 
Last performed by the Society in Wells in 2006, the audience can once again experience the power, excitement and tension of this epic musical drama telling the story of the prophet Elijah. 
 
Felix Mendelssohn said, 1838: "I imagined Elijah as a real prophet through and through, of the kind we could really do with today: Strong, zealous and, yes, even bad-tempered, angry and brooding—in contrast to the riff-raff, whether of the court or the people, and indeed in contrast to almost the whole world—and yet borne aloft as if on angels’ wings." 
 

Elijah, Felix Mendelssohn

Wookey Hole W.I.report of July Meeting

President Jill welcomed everyone to one of the hottest meetings that we could remember

despite the welcome breeze from several fans.

 Our recent visit to the Somerset Rural Life Museum was a great success and we appreciated the current Suffragette Exhibition which was on display. We have two Summer gatherings planned which enables us to relax and enjoy a good ‘natter’

   Our speaker was Annie Sapsead. She is a Natural Health Practitioner specializing in Aromatherapy, Reflexology and Reiki Healing. She has 20 years experience and her interest began when her arthritic mother benefited greatly from the treatment. We were treated to Rose and Geranium Oils which we massaged into our hands. Annie demonstrated the importance of this as we exercised our wrists and fingers.

She explained other treatments that benefit our health and  she also treats patients in nursing homes.

Sheila thanked her for her interesting talk.

Competition for a candle holder was 1st Pat B, 2nd Rose D

3rd Jill D.

Flower of the month 1st Jill D, 2nd Sue H ,3RD Maggie P

Silver cups for last years competitions were awarded to Jan S

and Jill D.

The afternoon ended with very welcome refreshments.

Two of our members are unwell and best wishes were sent to them by everyone.
