Caritas’s first concert was held in the beautiful medieval setting of Ewenny Priory on 7th March 2013. Music included Allegri’s ‘Miserere’, Purcell’s ‘Let mine eyes run down with tears’, Lotti’s ‘Crucifixus’ and Gibbons ‘O clap your hands’ as well as some more recent works by Walton, Vaughan Williams and Rutter.

At Ewenny in 2013 we were delighted to welcome one of Britain’s leading young composers, Tommy Hewitt Jones who has worked in Hollywood and who composed the Olympic Mascot theme 2012. We sung Tommy’s ‘Lead me O Lord’, an anthem written for the Royal School of Church Music, at the concert.

Having set out with a plan to raise £1,000 at every concert for a charity or other good cause, we reached this target in our first concert. There was much interest in the new choir, the repertoire and in the charity fund-raising with the result that the concert was sold out two weeks before it took place.

Since our first performance in March 2013 we have put on 25 concerts, building a large and wide-ranging repertoire of almost 200 pieces as well as raising over £29,000 for charities and other good causes. We aim to hit the £30,000 target by the end of 2017!
