Malcolm Kemp Posted August 25, 2009 Share Posted August 25, 2009 I've just got home from Arundel Cathedral where Board member Nigel Allcoat has given a stunning recital At least two other members of this Board were present. Seldom have I heard Franck slow movements (A minor Chorale and the Cantabile) so beautifully and artistically controlled with sensible use of subtle rubato, but the improvsations on each verse of the Ave Maris Stella and on the four Anthems of Our Lady from Compline were absolutely out of this world. Each improvisation was preceded by the plainchant melody sung by a Schola of five excellent young singers, mainly from Lancing College. The standing ovation from the audience at the end was well deserved. Thanks Nigel, for a fantastic evening. Malcolm Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
