In February the choir held a very successful morning workshop on the B Minor Mass. This was led by our MD, Harry Bradford, and accompanied by Colin Spinks. We were joined by members of other choirs as we worked on some of the vocal and musical techniques needed to perform the Mass as Bach intended.
Comments on the workshop included ‘I felt uplifted and excited by the challenge of using Harry's ideas and techniques’, ‘a wonderful workshop’ and ‘there was a real buzz at the end of the workshop - I thought the whole atmosphere was positive and fun’.

We are looking forward to applying these techniques to our performance of this wonderful work in March and hope that our audience will benefit!
