Memorabilia

I have received a great number of messages about last weeks performance and want to add to them with any more reflections that you have about singing in this concert.

Please do send any reflections on the music, the performance, what it meant to you and others to info@canterburycantatatrust.co.uk

Here’s a few of the many

Just wanted to say how much I enjoyed singing with the Amici on Saturday. . I thought it was a wonderful and moving experience and I found it hard to hold back the tears during the Benedictus on the Armed Man . 

I couldn’t believe that the choir was not professional, as your singing certainly was. 

As for ‘The Armed Man’ it was terrific! I usually close my eyes when listening but it’s so visual and exciting that it’s impossible not to want to listen and watch.

Thank you so much…… Perfectly timed for Armistice weekend.

Having let the dust settle a bit, I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed the experience of  singing the Mozart and Jenkins at the Colyer Fergusson Hall. I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did! Thank you for a fantastic evening of music making.

First of all thank you personally, for such a wonderful chance to sing amongst such talent, skill and enthusiasm.

The choir were abuzz with how wonderful an experience it was and so excited we had done as well as we had.

 

The orchestra were wonderful and I think both pieces were much better in performance, inspired no doubt by the calibre of the orchestra, the venue, the soloists  etc and a lot to achieve , 2 major works in one concert!! It was so impressive to have sold out as well
