Blazing trumpets, Baroque dance and uplifting choral singing were all part of this concert, which opened the 2018 Winchester Festival. An Anglo-German co-operation between the region’s top chamber choir and their partner choir from Braunschweig in Northern Germany filled the soaring vaults of the Nave with the glory of Bach. From the intimacy of solo flute to the power of voices and the excellent players of Florilegium, a wide range of emotions were touched and stirred.
