From the Herts Advertiser 6thApril 2017

In an extraordinarily powerful performance, [of Bach’s Mass in B minor] the St Albans Bach Choir certainly did the composer’s vision justice... From the first chords of the Kyrie Eleison we knew we were in for a treat. The crisp articulation of the first phrase of the five part fugue, perfectly matched by the instrumental parts, was maintained throughout the movement. The Gloria... was so exuberant that you could not fail to smile and wish you were up there yourself amongst the singers. The first half of the concert ended with the Cum Sancto Spiritu, which was sung at the fast Vivace tempo, allowing the choir to show off its dexterity and deliver semiquavers at lightning speed yet still with clarity.
