REVIEW of Verdi's Requiem in Birmingham on Sunday 28th February:

“As an example of corporate music-making, this concert must surely rank as the finest ever put on by the School.”

".....the choir summoned up a volume that was the personification of wrath, shattering in effect, yet never coarse in tone. Throughout the work, they proved capable of inspiring awe, be it fierce and threatening or quietly spiritual......"

Please see review of our Verdi Requiem performance on 28 February
