Comments from the audience:

"Andrew Simpson's Surge, Illuminare was very tuneful with exciting and dramatic word-painting"

"The glorious polyphony of the Byrd Vigilate was given a very spirited performance"

" The Tavener 'God is with us' was also terrrific and Steve Dean did a great job with the solos. I always fear the full organ entry which tends to make the choir sound flat even when it isn't!  But not on this occasion"

"Two (perhaps surprising) highlights for me were the unaccompanied verse in O come all ye faithful which was simply perfect, and the encore E'en so, Lord Jesus by Paul Manz"
