November 2003: Britten and Brahms

Britten's Ballad of Heroes
Brahms Requiem

November 2003

Exeter Express and Echo

Britten's Ballad of Heroes "was an unfamiliar piece of music to many in the audience..but was obviously enjoyed from the positive comments I heard people making"

"The second piece of music, Brahms Requiem, was rich and lyrical offering a clear message of hope in the midst of death"

"The choir and orchestra performed splendidly and the solo passages by bass-baritone Darren Jeffery and the ever excellent Rachel Nicholls left me wanting more"
