“Brilliant!” “Best yet, magnificent!” “Wonderful!”
Just some of the comments received after our latest two concerts for the Easter season. John Bowen, our talented musical director, continues our choral abilities and the choir certainly responded together with Steve Roberts, accompanist and with the wonderful sounds of the Meole Brace Chamber Orchestra. At times, it was almost celestial. Our home-grown soloists did us proud, starting with a gorgeous rendition of Oh For The Wings of a Dove, lead by soprano, Laura Poucher. Then for Schubert’s Mass in G, a challenging but delightful choral work, Joy Hutchings, soprano, Brian Goodwin, tenor, and Tom Kaye, Bass, all sang their hearts out for the enthralled audiences in both The Shrewsbury United reformed Church and St Chad’s Church at Montford.
