Bob Porter, Artistic Director, Brandenburg Festival - 18th January 2014

This is what Bob Porter had to say following our concert at St Clement Danes church in London:

It was simply a brilliant concert.

Looking through the Reading Phoenix Choir programme, it is so varied that you might jump to the conclusion that they are Jack of all Trades but that would be a fundamental mistake. They are Masters of All.

In performance the first thing you notice is the focused radiance of sound that comes from a well-trained group of voices who are clearly cruising and not having to push the tone at all.

Then when they really turn up the gas, the fact that they sing off-copy entirely means that they can deliver that quality sound into an arresting communication of the inner meaning of the music.

It is a delight to listen to – bravo!
