Tewkesbury Abbey Schola Cantorum of Dean Close Preparatory School are joined by Charivari Agréable in vividly communicative interpretations of three of Mozart’s sacred masterpieces.
The forces are very much as Mozart intended – a period orchestra, an all-male chorus and soloists (including 2009 BBC Chorister of the Year Laurence Kilsby) drawn from the choir. Under Benjamin Nicholas’s spirited direction, these performances bristle with energy and the invigorating freshness of youth.
"The young trebles of Tewkesbury Abbey are a force to be reckoned with. They sing musically and fearlessly with excellent diction and a mature, warm tone’"
"[Kilsby] makes a very strong showing in his important solos. His tone is sweet and his voice is graceful in the Agnus Dei of the Mass, nigh-on perfect in the Laudate Dominum of the Vespers."
