    Fantastic piece

    Review byNick Blunn - Teacher, West Hill Park School
    This fantastic piece was easy to learn and sing for both adults and children alike. We found it easy to do our own live performance using the clear and well-written orchestral parts. Everyone enjoyed it! Thanks.

    Great fun to sing

    Review by Lesia Smaditch - Musical Director
    The contemporary pop/rock feel made these pieces great fun to sing. A lovely mix of music which is easy to learn for any adult or children's choir. Very well put together, I would highly recommend this songbook for any choir looking for something a little different.

    Amazingly uplifting.

    Review by Mr. Stringfellow - Music Teacher, London
    The highlight of the evening was the coming together of the whole school to sing 'Roquiem'. “This was always my ultimate aim at Colfe’s: to have a concert which involved not just the whole school but every musician within it. The orchestra, singers, electric guitar and saxophones all come together beautifully in 'Roquiem'. The work, which meshes together a traditional Latin requiem with instruments like the electric Guitar, is an amazingly uplifting and life affirming piece of music.”

    Emotionally Uplifting Production

    Review by Cllr Bill Hoult - Mayor Of Harrogate
    It was an extremely professional and emotionally uplifting production, which brought together hundreds of people from the St John Fisher and St Roberts communities. The Mayoress and I were inspired to see so much talent in the young people who performed and we thoroughly enjoyed the show.

    A Very Moving Experience

    Review by Jo Dommett And Maggie Atkinson - St John Fisher School, Harrogate
    There were some moving solos from the Sixth Form Choir, accompanied by elegant interpretative dance from the talented Year 10 dance group. The Year 9 drama students who performed the crucifixion scene carried off this dramatic climax with the suitable gravitas and solemnity. When the St. John Fisher school choir and band moved into ‘Roquiem’ itself they proved to be in their usual excellent form, with the musicians well balanced to the sound of the vast school choir, performing in Latin with subtitles in English on the video screens. A mention must go to the hard work of those involved in the camera work and editing which allowed the audience to follow every word in English and see every face – no matter where they were sitting. As the performance reached its finale the roof of St. Robert’s must nearly have come off as the primary schools joined in for ‘In Paradisim,’ and the combined voices of all the schools filled the church. The entire event was a very moving experience for all those present and was a wonderful advert for our present young people, and for the promise the future holds.

    Positive And Uplifting.

    Review by Timothy Marks - National Artistic Director, Australian Youth Choir
    'RoQuiem' was a great way to introduce our youth choir to an extended piece that is positive and uplifting but always fun to work on. I was amazed at RoQuiem's capacity to inspire fantastic energy in our singers.

    Fantastic Experience!

    Review by Catherine Atkins - Chesterfield Philharmonic Choir, Uk
    Singing in 'Roquiem' was a fantastic experience. It is a great piece of music which sounded amazing when performed accompanied by a rock band.
