Simon’s feedback on our November 2019 concert

This is what Simon had to say about our rousing performances of Dvorak Mass in D and Vaughan Williams Dona Nobis Pacem I thought the reception we received last night was a true testament to the work we have done throughout the term. Many people in the audience told me they hadn't heard either piece [...]

Simon’s feedback on our April 2019 concert

The concert I hope you enjoyed last night as much as I did. I have been particularly looking forward to this programme.  Haydn's Nelson Mass is just terrific fun to sing, and fizzes along like an excellent bottle of champagne for the audience. When I was looking for pieces to go with the three trumpets [...]

Simon’s feedback on our Brahms’ Requiem concert

Brahms' Requiem is a very difficult, highly technical sing even for the most accomplished professional choirs. Last night came together for us brilliantly in every way. There were some very special moments from your opening pianissimo chords, to some terrifically spirited singing in the tricky fugues and the highly dramatic 3/4 section "Denn es wird [...]
