Baroque heavyweights do battle
at St James's
Collegium Musicum of London's next concert - MASTERS OF BAROQUE - sets three champions of the European baroque in competition at St James's Church in Piccadilly (Saturday, November 29th).
The choir is joined by a strike force of top-class soloists and instrumentalists in what promises to be an explosive contest, featuring the works of German stars JS Bach, GF Handel and plucky Brit Henry Purcell.
Audience acclaim for CML's Rachmaninov masterpiece
Collegium Musicum of London's autumn concert received a rapturous response from audience members at St John's in Notting Hill as the choir delivered a polished performance of Rachmaninov's neglected materpiece the Liturgy of St John Chrysostom. Here are some of the comments:
'The singing was of a very high order. To sing so much unaccompanied music and stay in tune as one voice was a great achievement - it was wonderful music.’
‘This was, to my ears, a wonderful rendition of the first choral composition by Rachmaninov.’
‘I went with two friends [both of whom sing in choirs] and we were all enchanted by the exquisite performance.’
‘...we all felt it an honour to hear the dedication of this talented choir.’
