Comments from our Audience
One of your most remarkable concerts!
Impressive sopranos; glorious singing!
We really enjoyed it; one of the best!
Thank you for a really glorious evening.
In this Haydn concert we sang the Missa in Angustiis (Nelson Mass) and the Motet Insanae et vanae curae. The orchestra played Haydn’s Symphony No.38. The Nelson Mass is considered by some to be Haydn’s greatest single composition and was named thus after Nelson had heard the mass performed.
We were joined by professional singers Soprano Alexandra Stevenson, Countertenor Timothy Clifford Hill, Tenor Matthew Spillett and Baritone Thomas Humphreys.
The Symphony No 38 is popularly called the Echo Symphony, nicknamed thus from the wonderful second movement Andante, in which passages played by the (unmuted) first violins are echoed by muted second violins.
This was a wonderful opportunity to hear live music of a high standard, played and sung in a local venue with professional soloists and musicians, at a very reasonable ticket price.
Established in 1986 as the Surrey Heath Choral Society, now the Surrey Heath Choral CIO, we are a friendly non-auditioned mixed voice choir of 65 singers. Since 2013, we are performing under the new name of Surrey Heath Singers. An a cappella group has been formed and is known as Singet!
Rehearsal evenings are entertaining, enriching and enjoyable and a warm welcome is extended to all who come along. We rehearse each Monday evening (except on Bank Holidays) from 7.30pm – 9.30pm in the main hall, High Cross Church, Camberley, Surrey, GU15 3SY.
