FAURE: Thank you Knaresborough Choral Society and your conductor Daniel Rodriguez, I really enjoyed relaxing in the audience during your heartfelt performance of Faure Requiem and Vivaldi Gloria at Starbeck Methodist Church. Soloists Carmel Wake and Heather Jane Taylor both had a lovely rich vocal tone and I was amazed to hear that Carmel sang three different vocal parts! The accompanist was Greg Smith and it was great to hear how well the organ, that is used mostly for church services, is also suited to a major choral work.
