The Sinfonia Chorale celebrated its 40th Anniversary year with an exciting programme of events.
The first highlight was a performance of Bach’s St John Passion in Southwell Minster, on the Tuesday of Holy Week. As well as directing the performance, Richard Roddis sang the role of the Evangelist, which made the event a very personal one for him. But there was also a quartet of very distinguished soloists, and a wonderful ensemble of players of period instruments led by Nicolette Moonen. And of course the choir (hear the clip in Listen to our music). Peter Palmer wrote, in the Nottingham Evening Post: In its 40th anniversary season, the Sinfonia Chorale reaffirmed its position as the region's premier chamber choir. One could never hope to find more devoted music-making than this.
