Wye Valley Chamber Music Festival is the highlight of the
area's classical music winter season. Just as we are replete
with a surfeit of turkey, Messiahs and Carol Concerts, it
brings six concerts over ten days of lean and sparkling
music to Monmouth, St Briavels, Hereford and Much Marcle.
string players and pianists, among the finest in Europe,
will descend on the tiny village of St Briavels and pitch
camp in the castle. There they will eat, sleep and rehearse
intensively to ensure that every performance has something
new to say and say it brilliantly.
of famous ensembles like the Nash, the Kungsbaka and the
Leopold will mix and match to create fresh, new sounds.
The first four concerts will each include at least one English
work, including, on his 150th birthday on Thursday, 18th
January, Elgar's piano quintet. (St Briavels). These will
be worked into a wonderful variety of duos, trios, quartets
and quintets by Mozart, Haydn, Schumann, Mendelssohn, Bartok
and Kodaly amongst others.

Friendly - Ross 2nds 8, Brockworth 2nds 0
1st team had a break last weekend, so it fell to the 2nd
team to continue the strong start to the season so far and
in extremely heavy conditions, they wore down an aggressive
Brockworth side to win far easier than the scoreline suggests.
pitch was borderline playable and it was obvious before
the kick off that flowing rugby was going to be extremely
difficult, however this young and promising Ross side started
brightly. Kenny Davies, Matt Redman and Kevan Healy worked
hard in the early forward encounters and Ross enjoyed the
majority of the ball. Half backs Chay Brine and Gareth Holdsworth
looked to keep the ball in hand and the Ross back line showed
great skill in controlling the ball in very muddy and slippery
with such positivity brought its rewards after 10 minutes
as Ross opened the scoring. Pete Smith and Andy Bevan made
a strong tackle in midfield and turned over the ball. Baz
Parker quickly moved the ball left to winger John Sprey,
who went outside his marker and looked odds on to score,
however, the Brockworth fullback made a try saving tackle.
As the ball went loose, Kenny Davies scooped it up and went
over to score, giving Ross a 5-0 lead which they held until
down hill in the second half, Ross quickly established territorial
control as the Ross pack put the squeeze on the Brockworth
eight. For what seemed like an age, Ross battered the Brockworth
line, with Slim, TC Leach and Lee Lusty all being held up
just short of the line and after sustained pressure, Ross
took advantage of a penalty in front of the posts converted
by John Sprey to stretch their lead to 8-0.
came back at Ross in the last quarter but some great defence
from Andy Lovering and Matt Redman ensured that they did
not trouble the scorers and Ross ran out comfortable winners
in the end. Gwalia man of the match was Matt Redman for
his tireless work in attack and defence.
forget Ross Chairman's XV take on a Ross XV on Boxing Day
down at the sports centre. Kick off is at 12 Noon so come
on down and marvel as the old timers show the youngsters
how the game used to be played.
