The Lydians Offer Condolences...
The passing of a Lydian
This week, Lydians around the world mourn the loss of Jenny Archer, Contralto who performed with the choir as a chorister and soloist since 1987. She will be so dearly missed.
Jenny was to the Contraltos of the Lydians what Glenis and Joanne are to the Sopranos. A redoubtable and much beloved "Miss" to successive generations of children at the Morvant Anglican School, Jenny brought the same dedication to her children that she brought to Lydian Music.
In the opera 'Koanga' by Delius, Jenny played the role of Clotilda, wife of Don Jose Martinez and also shone in other opera roles, at Music Festival and as a Principal Contralto soloist with the Lydians. As per choir Christmas tradition, she soothed countless Lydian audiences with her rendition of 'Red and Green Christmas' a piece written exclusively for the Lydian Singers by Cattouse of Belize. May her soul and the souls of the faithful departed through the mercy of God rest in peace.
