Accolades for Lullabies concert

Some feedback from the Lullabies concert of 2 September 2017, in Knox Church:

Praise for Anthony Ritchie work: 
"Anthony Ritchie - congratulations on the very successful debut/premiere of 'Lullabies' at Knox Church last night. The work was captivating from first 'hush' to last whisper. Your music set the words with wonderful sensitivity, imaginative sound painting and limning of the myriad moods. David Burchell, City Choir Dunedin and the choirs of St Hilda's and Columba were polished and powerful; Tom Chatterton was outstanding, playing sensitively and astutely balancing the various vocal forces artistically - his organ registrations, apt at every turn. Kudos for this, your latest triumph. John van Buskirk, ODT 5 Sep 2017

Thank you so much for the wonderful program last night. It was thoroughly enjoyable. The mix of items and the mix of voices was great. Dunedin's choral history is in good hands! Again, thank you!

Congratulations on a fine concert last evening! Especially the performance of the Duruflé, I felt was spiritually inspired and a deeply moving musical experience. Thank you.

I attended last night's performance and was mesmerised from beginning to end. The precision of the choir was impressive and the voice blend was magical. Children and soloists equally fabulous. The friends I was with were equally impressed.
