Impressive Bronte Mass

Review from Halifax Courier 3 April 2012

‘Expressive’ and ‘impressive’ was Halifax Courier’s view of the performance of Philip Wilby’s Bronte Mass given by Halifax Choral Society and Sheffield Philharmonic Chorus, accompanied by the world-famous Black Dyke Band.

“The choir, unfazed by the formidable technical difficulties, was expressive, particularly in the concluding Gloria, which John Pryce-Jones insisted on playing twice”. “The choir sang John Cameron’s arrangement of Elgar’s Nimrod Variation with quiet authority and did full justice to Brucjner’s richly textured Three Motets.”
