Just some of the feedback we received from the Verdi concert:
"It was most definitely one of the best performances I have heard a choral group perform. The musicians were wonderful and my gosh the Dies Irae was absolutely mind blowingly amazing! I wish I could attend the second performance!"
"Absolutely brilliant, the choir, the soloists and orchestra were magnificent. This is how Verdi's Requiem is supposed to be heard. You have made not only my day but the whole week" "I never thought that I would be as moved by the music & singing as I was on Friday. The soloists were stunning, the musicians all seemed so young yet they played magnificently and the choir, well words cannot express how incredibly they came together as two separate choirs to sing with such feeling. I was a little confused when at the onset everyone in the choir sat with their eyes shut and head bowed but when I heard the result WOW! More, More, More please"
"My word you started as you meant to go on....inspiring concept to have the choir close their eyes and almost pray the Requiem. Nothing disappointed throughout. The young orchestra were fantastic, the soloists...well I think we were all dumbstruck and a little in love with the ladies and that Bass! Phew! You were all stupendous and I am so glad I was able to come along and support such gifted choirs"
"What a truly astonishing concert it was yesterday........superb music. It’s the best concert I’ve been to for a very long time"
‘"the power and strength of the wonderful performance of the Verdi Requiem last night. It was such a marvellous concert"
"An amazingly powerful performance – very well done!"
"Verdi's Requiem is a wonderful work, and having two choirs join forces made for a rich, powerful sound."
"This was the best performance of the Verdi Requiem that I have ever heard by an amateur choir".
“Oh, it was sublime and the opening passages transported me to Heaven!"
