"...From the first almost whispered "Requiem" to the final dying phrase, the BFC was crisp and clear, warm and haunting....."
"Brighton Festival Chorus ... this excellent ensemble, whose reputation and renown deservedly continue to bring pride to the city."
"There is something fundamentally moving about hearing dozens of human voices singing in harmony and this performance by the 130 members of Brighton Festival Chorus was both uplifting and enriching. Under the baton of James Morgan, this internationally renowned choir produced an impeccable delivery of two choral works by John Rutter."
John Rutter: Requiem (All Saints, Hove)
John Rutter: Mass of the Children
