Both choirs come together to conclude the evening with a rendition of Jerusalem.
THE next concert in the Liskeard Concert Series also takes place next Saturday at the town's Public Hall at 7.30pm.

THIS year is the 300th anniversary of Corelli's death and, as one of the foremost composers of the Baroque period, is a particularly significant date for an ensemble specialising in playing music of the time as authentically as possible.
Devon Baroque opens its new season with Catch The Corelli Connection – a programme exploring the development of the concerto grosso form, through the composer's own, and that of some of his contemporaries' works.
There are two opportunities to appreciate this glorious music as audiences of the time might have heard it – next Saturday evening, September 21 in Exeter's St David's Church, or the next day at St Mary's Church, Totnes, at 3pm.
Directed from the keyboard by Jonathan Watts, the programme includes concerti grossi by Corelli and Handel, other works by Muffat and Vivaldi, and finishes with Bach's Brandenburg Concerto No 3.
IT never ceases to impress when a seemingly small music club can still present artists of international acclaim.
Newton Abbot and District Society of Arts has, however, pulled this off in the past and, if its next two seasons are anything to go by, has done it again.
The celebrated Wihan String Quartet comes in 2015, but this season's opening concert next Saturday at Teignmouth Community School's Performing Arts Centre at 7.30pm features top pianist Paul Lewis in a programme of Bach-Busoni, Beethoven, Liszt, and ends with Mussorgsky's epic Pictures at an Exhibition.
