  • immersive, direct and passionate


  • ‘This was sublime. I was moved to tears and never wanted it to finish. I have never experienced such a wonderful connection between the soloists, between the soloists and the musicians, and the soloists and the choir and audience. You all told the story so movingly with so much compassion. We were all captivated and felt hugely involved.’
