Of course, because they are amateurs, the Cantata Singers were not flawless. They occasionally slipped out of tune, sometimes seemed a bit thin, and every once in a while appeared to lose their way in the music. But with the skillful conductor Warren Puffer Jones directing them and the talented organist Thomas Bandy accompanying them, their flaws were only flesh wounds and never fatal. Besides, the people in the audience weren't there for flawless; they were there for heartfelt. And in that, they were never disappointed.
The Cantata Singers' next concert, "Rise Up, My Love," a program of love songs from around the world, is on Sunday, February 11, at First Congregational Church.
