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?

"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."

Ann-Helen Moen
Soprano Soloist – Mozart Requiem

"A gem of a choir"

Christopher Lermmings
Tenor Soloist – Rossini Petite Messe Solennelle

“Britten Sinfonia had the pleasure of giving the premiere of "Maze" with the Saffron Walden Choral Society in a Music Nation event last year. The impressive new work, composed by the society's Musical Director Janet Wheeler, was a real test for any choir and SWCS gave a typically spirited and assured performance making for a memorable evening for everyone involved”.
