Londinium's performance of 'A.M.D.G.' a 'tour de force'

Our January concert, 'Britten in America', marked the Britten centenary by setting Hymn to St Cecilia and A.M.D.G., both written while Britten was in America in 1939-1942, alongside American music including Copland's In the Beginning, for which Carris Jones was the mezzo-soprano soloist. The concert was reviewed by Robert Hugill, who particularly praised Londinium's performance of A.M.D.G. ‘… a terrific piece if taken on its own terms and one which gives the choir a chance to shine, which Londinium did quite brilliantly. Their performance of the whole work was a tour de force, and it was presented with a confidence, firmness and vividness which was altogether admirable.’ (Robert Hugill, planethugill.com) Read full review
