Last Saturdays concert was excellent! (if I do say it myself)

Singing in Bradford Cathedral is always a great experience, and hearing it filled with beautiful music even more of a pleasure. The first half of the concert was relatively simple for the sopranos at least, the Bach Cantata 140 having a steady soprano line while the other parts dart around each other. The choir then got to sit and listen to the marvellous orchestra and the Manchester Baroque Soloists who were excellent (I won't try and name everyone, couldn't if I attempted)

The second half was Rutter's Magnificat, and parts certainly lived up to billing. Soprano soloist Martha Hayward was on top form, and the slower pieces were really beautiful. The audience seemed to enjoy the music very much, and several people commented on how well the choir sang.

All in all, a great success! (Now onward to Christmas!)

  1. You are so right, Louise. Once we realised how well we were singing, we got more and more confident and as the really difficult parts went by without problems we really enjoyed ourselves. This comes over to the audience and they responded in kind.
