Change in direction
MOZART & HAYDN:
MASTER SACRED WORKS
Renaissance Singers conducted by
St Peter's Church, Palmerston North,
Reviewed by Karen Carter
This concert represents a change
of direction from recent perform-
ances, moving into the realm of
sacred works with organ, trumpet and
timpani accompaniment throughout.
This provided a new dimension to the
singers more typical unaccompanied
concerts, allowing for new timbres and
Although a sacred programme, there
was nothing austere about these works
-- rather they were full of colour, cel-
ebration and pageantry.
Mozart s works filled the first half of
His short motet Ave Verum Corpus
opened the concert and set the tone for
what was to follow.
It was a crowd pleaser, sung sweetly,
and provided a thorough warmup for
the chamber choir.
Solemn Vespers (K339), with its five
psalms and magnificat, is a superb
work and allowed the groups of
performers to showcase their skills.
Each of the six parts of the work had
different demands, whether because of
the complex rhythms or melody

dynamics or the interpretative

It was in the psalm Confitebor we
first had the opportunity to really
appreciate the accomplished group of
solo singers, each of whom had a strong
voice which blended well.
Soprano Bryony Williams exuded
confidence and had a beautiful tone
through all registers.
She was matched in skill by Pauline
Rowe (contralto), Frank Carter (tenor)
and Robbie Andrew (bass).
Haydn s Mass in Time of War was
the featured second half work. It is a
colourful and dramatic work and the
singers and players approached it with
energy while retaining precision.
Highlights were the subtle contrasts
in the Gloria, the tension which
permeated the Sanctus, and the solo
quartet in the Benedictus.
The instrumentalists were a
balanced foil and support for the

pared and impeccably presented.
Director Guy Donaldson is to be
commended for the care, crafting and
attention to detail which characterised
such a splendid performance.

People of Dutch descent or anyone

A picnic in a Palmerston North

booked as a back-up venue.

Some sunshine is good for you
By KERRY HOCQUARD
The sun s ultraviolet radiation is
the major cause of skin cancer
and the best source of vitamin D;
essential for strong bones, muscles and
Vitamin D is a hormone controlling
calcium levels in the blood.
Vitamin D is made in our bodies
through processes that start when our
skin is exposed to UVR.
Vitamin D is also obtained in a diet
rich in fruit, vegetables, oily fish, mar-
garine and some dairy products forti-
fied with vitamin D, eggs and liver.
However, the vitamin D in food
makes a relatively small contribution
to a person s overall vitamin D levels.
How do we get the vitamin D-sun
protection balance right?
It is important to maintain vitamin
D levels all year round.
Prolonged exposure to UVR is not
necessary to boost vitamin D levels; it
is said a few minutes in summer is
more efficient for the production of vit-
Our bodies store enough vitamin D to
last between 30 and 60 days.
A balance is required between
avoiding an increased risk of skin can-
cer and maintaining adequate vitamin
While enjoying daily outdoor exer-
cise, whether it is cycling to school or
work, or a walk in the sunshine, sen-
sible sun protection (including sun-
smart clothing, hats, wrap-around
sunglasses, and broad spectrum sun-
screen), is a must for summer and need
not put people at risk of vitamin D
There is no one-size-fits-all sun pre-
scription for vitamin D.
The amount of time in the sun
needed to produce enough vitamin D
depends on a number of factors includ-
ing individual skin type, time of day,
time of year, and location.
But for most people, the time is
typically short and less than it takes to
redden or burn.
Some people, including the elderly,
obese, babies and infants of vitamin
D-deficient mothers, people wearing
full body coverage, and people with
dark skin, are more likely to be at risk
of vitamin D deficiency.
These people may need to speak to
their doctor about taking vitamin D
Low levels of vitamin D may have no
obvious symptoms, but without treat-
ment, can have significant health
