Review: Concert of Sacred Music

NEARLY 100 people braved a chilly Palm Sunday evening to enjoy a performance of sacred music by the Twyford Singers.

NEARLY 100 people braved a chilly Palm Sunday evening to enjoy a performance of sacred music by the Twyford Singers.

Ably accompanied by guest organist Matthew O’Sullivan the concert included a stirring rendition of Haydn’s Insanae Et Vanae Curae followed by a lyrical Ave Verum Corpus by Mozart. This was followed by Tchaikovsky’s The Crown Of Roses, with the choir bringing pathos and passion to this piece by their well-executed range of dynamics.

Soprano Marjorie Harrison gave a beautiful, gentle rendition of Franz Schubert’s Ave Maria, which was followed by a moving performance by Sue Thomas of JS Bach’s Agnus Dei from the Mass In B Minor.

Musical director Helen Styles said: “I really enjoyed putting this programme together. I’m glad the audience seemed to like it, too.”
