Dear Chorister

 

First of all we need to acknowledge what a wonderful collective effort we all put in over the past months that led the choir to such great performance on Saturday.  No one prouder in that Hall than myself.  Thank you for your support of the Music team.

Once again - a great night for the Choir , and the response in the Hall to our three songs was tremendous and well-deserved.

 

Regards

 

David Stott

Adjudicator’s Comments

 

Flying Free

 

A beautiful legato line and attractive phrasing.  Good use of dynamics.  The tone is generally warm and free.  Work hard at the diction – consonants need more crispness.   However, free vowels throughout.  What a beautiful piece – thank you for bringing this.

 

 

 

Castleford Ladies

 

Much better diction here.  A fun song with some effective storytelling.

 

 

 

African Prayer

 

This needs a stronger opening.  Keep breath low and project!  However secure tuning and well-balanced part singing.  Again good use fo dynamics.  Keep the energy up at the end of phrases.  Powerful ending.  Bravo!
