Choral on fine form

10 Jan 2018

We received a great review for our November Concert, recognising not only the Choral’s performance but the fine work of our Musical Director, Ed Taylor, to bring us to this point.

Both our accompanists were recognised for their skill and contributions: ‘Margaret Harvie’s delicate, harp-like piano accompaniment rippled along beautifully’ in Faure’s Cantique de Jean Racine and John Kitchen’s accompaniments on the organ were a ‘virtuosic display of support and balance’

‘one of the best concerts the Choral has given in years’
