"The choir's performance was as professional as ever and really added that special something. We would be happy to recommend you." KK, Windsor
"You were amazing...hearing the beautiful sound was truly lovely." HM, Reading
Mendelssohn: Elijah "A heavenly chorus
uses energy to retell Mendelssohn's Elijah..."
Bach Mass in B minor "...a stunning performance
of Bach's monumental Mass in B minor.
The rapt attention of the audience and its exuberant applause spoke volumes."
African Sanctus "...their performance of
African Sanctus by David Fanshawe was electrifying.
The singers were wonderful, especially the choirs' sopranos rendering war dance notes."
Mozart Requiem "...captured Mozart's exploration
of the range of emotions roused by an acute awareness of mortality."
