Governor General says Choir of Trinity College is superb!
The Choir has received more praise in the press, this time in response to their performance at the launch of Musica Viva’s 2011 International Concert Season. Matthew Westwood in the Australian writes:
“The cacophony of Canberra politics temporarily gave way on Wednesday night to sounds far more harmonious. The Choir of Trinity College from Cambridge, England, is nearing the end of a national tour for Musica Viva, and had stopped at Government House for a concert in the presence of the Governor-General.
The youthfulness and vitality of this student choir, directed by Stephen Layton, is a delight. Their concert tour is of mostly sacred music, but on Wednesday they sang a mixture of spiritual and secular, beginning with Pastime with Good Company by their college’s founder, Henry VIII.
Quentin Bryce praised the choir’s joie de vivre: ‘You are part of a great tradition, a distinguished, superb choir.’”
