Review: English Church Music across Four Centuries at Holy Trinity, Gosport


‘He never disappoints!’ declared one of our regular concert-goers as she went upstairs for tea and cake. And she was right: Geoffrey Holroyde brought us yet another memorable tea-time concert – a fabulous hour of strikingly beautiful music.

We are privileged indeed at Holy Trinity to attract musicians of such high calibre as we were so fortunate to listen to today. Geoffrey’s programme was just perfect for the run-up to Easter and every performer played their part beautifully.

We thank The Coten Singers, many of whom had travelled from Warwick, for the crystal clarity of their combined voices, Dolce String Quartet (our Quartet in Residence) and Mike Wilson for their faultless performance of Handel’s Concerto in G Minor and Sam Bristow who accompanied the singers and the Quartet on organ and harpsichord. And finally we must thank the maestro himself, Geoffrey Holroyde, for bringing this all together for our great enjoyment!
