Last Friday's sell-out concert, conducted by Joseph Nolan and featuring the Australian Premiere of Pachelbel's Vespers, has received high praise from Rosalind Appleby of The West Australian.

Ms Appleby declared that the "premiere was delivered with flawless detail by the Consort, accompanied by the Musician's Table (led by Paul Wright). Complex vocal polyphony contrasted with graver declamation, punctuated by creative statements of the Alleluia. Choral sections were interspersed with eloquent solos and instrumental passages including a nimbly ornamented violin solo by Wright. Tenor Paul McMahon and alto Courtney Pitman sang with agility; James Clayton made more ponderous work of the bass solos.

"The Gloria patri at the conclusion of the Magnificat in Eb had a noble lethargy reminiscent of the Canon, with the addition of long, sighing soprano lines sung by Julianne Baird and Fiona Campbell. Campbell's deep, pure mezzo grows more glorious with every concert. Her ability to project an immaculate, artistic melody line sets the benchmark for baroque singing.

"Wright led the orchestra in selections from Vivaldi's The Four Seasons with the flamboyance of British baroque wildcards Red Priest."

The Cathedral Consort's next major performance, Monteverdi's Vespers on Friday 16 November at 7.30pm, is sure to be popular.  To avoid missing out on your seat, book now at Ticketmaster online.
