Surrey Hills Singers win The Daykin Cup at Godalming


With accompanist Robert Gillman in Godalming

The Surrey Hills Singes were thrilled to win the Daykin cup at Godalming musc festival.  The adjudicator, Neil Jenkins, said the following about their performance

All my Trials
 A very good mood was set here by a confident and able soloist and a vocal group that blended well and sang sympathetically.  The unison singing was extremely fine, and then, when the harmony developed, there was an equally fine balance.  What a very moving performance

Las Amarillas
This was a really brave and exciting performance!  And what made it particularly clever was to do it without a beat, thus forcing each line to be particularly self-sufficient.  The changes of tempo were very secure.  Just take care at the top of the voice that it doesn’t become strident.  But rhythmically it was very brilliant and accurate.
