Review: Reg Chapman, “Final concert contained style and expression”, Mercury, 4 February 1985, p.12. “the choir gave a programme which [combined] diversity of musical style with unity of expression, and the large audience was appreciative of this … The programme opened with ‘Lux Aeterna’ by David Hamilton, in which the choir was most successful in its evocation of a mystical, ethereal quality. This was followed by John Rutter’s ‘Gloria’ … the joyous sound of the third movement was an exhilarating experience.”
