I will be going to Brittany in France with the choir in a few weeks time to a small town called Plerin Sur Mer. Our local town here in Northern Ireland is twinned with Plerin, and we will be hosted by a choir from there called Plena Voce. We’ve had this cross exchange for around twenty- five years, since our towns were first twinned, and we visit each other to perform together on alternate years. With this pending visit in mind I have chosen La Mer. - Charles Trenet....this was an international hit for him in 1946 and went on to be recorded in many languages, including English, and was a hit for Bobby Darin as “Beyond the Sea” in the 1960s.
