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."
The Armed Man "Conductor Alexander Chaplin coaxed out of the choir and orchestra the different moods of the music to perfection. The choir sang throughout with a purity of tone and clarity of diction that was truly memorable."
German Requiem "Wokingham Choral Society's performance at this concert was impressive in their
understanding and command of the music with its many variations in sentiment and swift changes of mood.
The final Chorus was simply glorious."
Child in a Manger "....providing a platform for the choir to display its impressive musicality, including solo parts by members of the choir during In dulci jubilo."
