Saturday 11th May 2019 

Rutter Requiem and songs from The Sprig of Thyme; Roberts According to Thy Word

With the Sussex Concert Orchestra

“A concert of modern English choral music, wistfully melancholic and gently lyrical…included a sensitively unaccompanied Willow Song for the choir… The very long lines of the concluding Lux Aeterna [in Rutter’s Requiem] proved to be no problem for the choir which had risen to the dynamic challenges of all three works with ease”.  (Brian Hick, Lark Reviews)

Carols and Christmas Music for Choir and Audience

With the Cinque Ports Brass

“An exhilarating ‘Torches! Torches!’ followed by the mellow glow of Berlioz’ ‘Shepherd’s Farewell’ set the tone.  Throughout, the crisp rhythms of the choir and the clear diction added to the sense of immediacy… All involved were on fine form throughout”.  (Brian Hick, Lark Reviews)

Handel Messiah

“Kenneth Roberts brought a dramatic intensity to his reading which helped keep the narrative moving rapidly. Choral singing was crisp and responsive throughout, with clear articulation of the text and very tight rhythms. ‘And He shall purify’, ‘Behold the Lamb of God’ and ‘All we like sheep’ were particularly clear in attack and clarity of part singing.” (Dr. Brian Hick, http://www.larkreviews.co.uk).

Vivaldi Magnificat, Monteverdi Beatus Vir, selections of works by Purcell

Carols & Christmas Music for Choir and Audience

“Bexhill Choral Society was in splendid voice for its traditional concert of carols and Christmas music. A very large audience joined the choir and Cinque Ports Brass for an evening which brimmed over with good things. It may have been cold outside, but our hearts had been warmed by a wonderful evening”. (Dr. Brian Hick, http://www.larkreviews.co.uk).
