Durham Choral Society: Heaven and earth

Durham Choral Society and Northern Spirit Singers, with soloists Andrew Slater and Rowan Pierce perform Fauré’s heavenly Requiem and Walton’s very earthy Belshazzar’s Feast.

DUCC Haydn ‘Nelson’ & Britten St Nicolas

Durham University Choral Society make a big impact in Clare Lawrence-Wills’s first concert as conductor, bounding joyfully through Haydn’s Nelson Mass and giving an absolutely gripping performance of Britten’s cantata ‘St Nicolas’.

Star of wonder: Northern Spirit Singers

It’s not often that you hear Slade and Bruckner in the same concert: Northern Spirit Singers brightened up a gloomy, stormy night with magical Christmas sparkles.
