Review of Dream of Gerontius on Upbeat

David mentioned the review by Tony Ryan on Upbeat - here's a link to that audio:
Upbeat with Eva Radich, interview with Tony Ryan

The best part of the review, for us, is when he said: "... I think the best parts of the performance came from the choir. Brian Law had wisely, I think, augmented Christchurch City Choir with those extras from Wellington's Orpheus Choir and the Dunedin City Choir. As well as that, he had the Christchurch Cathedral Choir as the semi-chorus..." "... and this meant that the big choral and orchestral moments came across absolutely splendidly..." "... they made a glorious sound..."

Thanks for the link. It was very positive about the choirs, wasn't it!
