Tell Me It’’s Not True
A lovely sound at the outset – well-supported ‘oohs’ and clear diction: you colour individual words and sing with ease.. a lovely sense of drama is achieved.
A lovely contrast – positiveness in singing, controlled and figured. Positive in the 4-part harmony.. You achieve a clarity and sincerity in your singing – positive unison control. You make us listen, lovely quiet dynamic control. You watch your conductor very well, and try to follow his every signal. A lovely shaped close.
Battle Hymn of the Republic
A nice rhythmical feeling – a sense of marching and movement. Good 4-part harmony. The T/B verse with ‘oohing’ in the ladies serves to strengthen this section and is effective. Positive dynamic contrasts and good word painting.. A rousing performance
Well Done. [Adjudicator: Steven Roberts]
