In Concert

Extracts from the Bath Chronicle review of A Cambridge Mass:

The long opening Credo, for choir and four soloists, is Andante Maestoso, with a protracted Amen, the dynamic variety well-balanced and the choir responded admirably to the complex harmonic patterns. The Sanctus is powerful and declamatory, some lyrical moments and big crescendos, moving easily between serenity and urgency, the two choirs singing in canon. The final Benedictus, with reduced orchestral sound, has a combination of chorus and quartet, providing an almost dreamlike quality before the concluding restated Hosanna fugue.

It is a fascinating piece which will attract choirs everywhere, but it needs serious orchestral quality to support the singers. Both choir and players were in excellent form and this was a thoroughly satisfying new musical experience. The four soloists, soprano Olivia Robinson, alto Rebecca Lodge, tenor Christopher Bowen and baritone Edward Price, made their contributions with suitable artistry and style.

... A most exquisite Lark Ascending from Harry Hall, former Bath Young Musician or the year, now at Oxford. This was a wonderfully expressive performance, with quite beautiful orchestral accompaniment which supported and enhanced the solo violin. A richly varied, high-quality evening's music.
