Verdi Requiem

Saturday 19th April 2008

We gave a ‘riveting’ performance – according to the Henley Standard.

Our choir joined with the ‘Ensemble de Meylan’ a well-known French group from Grenoble, who made an exchange visit to us after we performed with them last year in France. We also had ‘Parenthesis’, a Reading-based choir, a combined choir of about 220 voices!

Singing the beautiful solo interludes our soloists were soprano Julia Sporsen, mezzo soprano Rachael Lloyd, tenor Paul Hopwood and baritone Roland Wood, all young professionals already successfully launched on their careers.  The choirs were accompanied by the South Chiltern Orchestra and conducted by Gwyn Arch.
