What People Say

Praised often for our versatility and musicality, SWCS are always happy to hear from members of the audience, whether in Saffron Hall after a concert or on social media - sometimes not even before the end! The professional soloists who sing with us, equally, let us know how we do - why not read some of their comments below?

What a great night it was!  One thing I can say straight away: Saffron Walden’s got a concert hall with excellent accoustics!

Ann-Helen Moen
Soprano Soloist - Verdi Requiem

"What a pleasure it was to take part in SWCS's performance of Elgar's Dream of Gerontius. Janet did an amazing job and I've never heard the choir sing so well. It was a hugely emotional and moving evening that I'll remember for a long time to come."

Diana Moore
Mezzo-Soprano Soloist - The Dream of Gerontius

"SWCS was on top form. They worked very hard at the drama & emotion of the music & the results were very moving. I've never heard it sung better."

Edward Price
Bass Soloist - The Dream of Gerontius

"It was a huge pleasure to be part of such a magnificent performance. I will particularly remember the magical moment when Janet held performers and audience alike in suspended animation (much like Gerontius himself...) at the end of the concert."

Richard Edgar-Wilson
Tenor Soloist - The Dream of Gerontius

"It's a sheer joy to perform the Requiem with such a committed choir making such a marvellous sound. The choir is very lucky to have Janet leading it."
