Andrea’s comment on the concert

To you all –

Huge congratulations on your fantastic singing of the Monteverdi Vespers on Saturday night. I felt quite honoured to be working with such excellent musicians – including you!

The feedback from the audience, soloists and band has been tremendous – and, for me, the Nisi Dominus was really top notch. Throughout the performance you managed to capture the rhythmic brilliance and mellifluous phrasing of the music and with the artistry of the soloists, band and our simply brilliant theorbo player, we created a magical and dramatic performance. Well Done.

Much thanks need to go to our committee, who ran such an excellent production – looking after us all in rehearsal and performance and specifically for Antony for fixing such excellent singers and players (a challenge, given the historical instrument aspect!) and of course to Elspeth, for her excellent and continued support.

I would also like to thank you all for putting such an effort into learning the piece, and attending those extra coaching and saturday rehearsals. I know that it was challenging repertoire and it did stretch us – you should all be extremely proud of what you’ve achieved. This marks the end of my first year with you all and I’ve thoroughly enjoyed working with you. I hope you have time for rest over the next month and I look forward to January and Brahms (and Beethoven) with the excellent Festival Chorus in 2016.

with warm wishes for the festive season,
