Some reviews of past performances:

  • 'The Choir did themselves many favours with a warm sound, clear entries and superb fugal singing.'

Musical Opinion

  • 'This ... choir performs with a full-throated sense of joy... their presentation ... was vivid, fresh and moving ... full of expressive ardour.'

Manchester Evening News

  • 'Salford Choral Society's singing was crisp, joyful and emotional, the phrasing live and rich with vocal colours.'

Manchester Evening News

  • 'The orchestra, choir, soloists, and conductor, did themselves proud with this solid performance of what is quite a complex and technically challenging piece. Newall, especially, was interesting to watch as a conductor: he clearly loved every moment of conducting the Requiem and the orchestra and choir responded to his enthusiasm. Musically, the evening was full of drama and emotion and everyone involved has the right to be proud of their part in the performance.'
