A very successful concert!

Many people present on Saturday 4th November were ‘blown away’ by the beauty of the music presented by Basildon Choral with Sinfonia da Chiesa, professional singers and harpist. The programme included Monteverdi’s Beatus Vir, Vivaldi’s Credo and Saint-Saens Oratorio de Noel plus instrumental pieces for strings and harp by Elgar and Purcell.

Some quotes from those present:

‘The concert was a triumph.’

‘I’d not been to anything like that before – it was amazing!’

‘When everyone came in for the last part of the Oratorio – whoosh! – it made the hairs on the back of my neck stand up!’

‘I was moved to tears by the beauty of the orchestral pieces.’

‘When the harpist played her first chords I heard a sharp intake of breath and a whispered ‘Wow!’’

‘You were all splendid! I’m looking forward to the Christmas concert already.’
