COMMENTS FOLLOWING RECENT CONCERTS

“Plymouth Philharmonic Choir, under conductor Christopher Fletcher, couldn’t have made a more telling case for the work [Elijah], than their quite superlative performance, where the simple sincerity and tonal beauty of  ‘He that shall endure to the end’ still emerged arguably as one of the best moments.”
Philip Buttall, music critic for The Herald

“I’m really proud to be part of this wonderful choir. Christopher works us hard but look at the results! Fantastic and memorable evening of amazing soloists and orchestra too.”
Kathryn Slater, choir member

“The choir were superb. As their new President I’d like to congratulate them all. The one word that springs to mind was moving. It was a sweeping arch of sound.” Brian Gerry

Comments overheard on the way out after St John Passion:

“What an achievement. The harmonies were fabulous.”
To a choir member “You look exhausted. How’s the voice?” “What voice?” she croaked.
“It was so moving and everyone put in a hundred and ten percent.”
“That soprano was terrific.”
“To my untutored ears it was fantastic.”
“Absolutely magic – so powerful.”
“I’m knackered!” (said by a choir member)

It is no wonder that, under the direction of Christopher Fletcher, the Plymouth Philharmonic Choir has become recognized as one of the best in the country.
