Berkshire Youth Choir
"This was a remarkable performance delivered to a very high standard under the leadership of Peter Asprey. The chorus was assured and confident and with an equally mature Berkshire Festival Orchestra thrilled the audience. All aspects of the performance underlined the care and enthusiasm of the preparation. Tuning and pace were faultless and the contrasts within the piece were highlighted perfectly by the chorus and orchestra and the line up of excellent soloists."
London Symphony Chorus
“The London Symphony Chorus, about 120 strong, coped well with the Old Slavonic language and produced an impressive range of tone, at times thrilling in its corporate attack, at others very moving in its hushed responses to the conductor's total control of this difficult work” The Times newspaper.
