Reviews

We are delighted and grateful to be able to point you to some reviews of our recent concerts:

“Saturday’s luminous performance showcased three great Leeds choirs”

Geoffrey Mogridge on The Dream of Gerontius in The Ilkley Gazette

“There was a palpable momentum to Good Friday’s deeply moving performance given by the St Peter’s Singers and the National Festival Orchestra … The vocal line was impeccably counter-balanced by the rich sonorities of the instrumental ensemble led by Sally Robinson”.

“As to be expected, Orchestra of Opera North and St Peter’s Singers deliver the goods with ease and are truly terrific in bringing the narrative into a new and perfect realm.”

Rich Jevons on War Horse – The Story in Concert in The Review Hub

“The forty voices of St Peter’s Singers injected more vocal colour including the boisterous music hall song Goodbye Dolly Gray, and a tear jerking performance of Silent Night.”

“A striking quality of the auspicious premiere in the warm acoustic of this spacious Victorian church was the communicative power of the Penthos Requiem to connect with the listener. This was in no small part down to the sincerity and crystal clear projection of soloists Lucy Appleyard and Quentin Brown with the carefully blended St Peter’s Singers.”
