18th June 2017

I was very pleased with my dear friends in Nottingham Bach Choir on 17 June, who sang a most expressive performance of three of Parry’s fine ‘Songs of Farewell’, the challenging ‘Lord, let me know mine end’ being particularly well carried off. After the interval they responded to my every gesture in a moving performance of the Duruflé Requiem. It was a delight to have my erstwhile Southwell colleague, Simon Hogan, as accompanist, and to listen to his stunning performance of the Duruflé Suite pour Orgue.
