For many years, we have been closely linked with the Villanelle de Sceaux, a choir in Leamington's twin-town of Sceaux. They are affiliated to the movement A Coeur Joie, known in England as Sing for Pleasure. We have shared many enjoyable concerts with them in both Sceaux and Warwickshire. In the autumn of 2018, we were lucky enough to be invited to join them for a weekend of music-making at the start of November, culminating in a joint performance of John Rutter's wonderful Magnificat in the church of St-Stanislas des Blagis. It was, in every way, a splendid weekend.
