  • Singers in Lagos | News | The Sixteen
    Gulder Nigeria s and now Stuart s favourite beer and shake an ex president s hand all the while smiling wide and genuinely heartfelt smiles until our cheeks quite frankly hurt a bit Everywhere we went we were made so unbelievably welcome by Damola Rev d Johnson and their friends that we both felt both truly delighted and humbled by such warm and open kindness And everybody we met laughs so very wonderfully loudly Inside the cathedral itself the boys were impressively respectful and receptive and in general the standard of singing and sight reading was already good A special mention should also perhaps be made of the two resident organists Babatunde Sosan and Adejola Adeosun who were both as skilful as any organist I know Each boy seemed to relish some one on one attention and gladly two lessons was plenty of time for each boy to relax and let their personalities shine through Individual lessons quickly turned into mini master classes as boys actually abandoned their football games to come in and watch their colleagues at work Amongst some stunning young voices were a handful of sixteen to twenty year olds who were still clinging to their head voices and manfully whacking out top As from front rows of the choir stalls on a regular basis After exploring their broken voices with them we hope they will now be encouraged to move to the back rows and sing in their natural register be it countertenor tenor or as in a couple of cases rich bass voices which surprised their owners no end on first hearing Naturally the younger boys will therefore need to take the lead as the older boys migrate but we have no doubt they will manage perfectly from the way many of them stepped up to the mark with impressive confidence as we dished out small solo lines in the Psalm pleasantly surprising a number of the older choir members All the trebles sang their Rutter and Franck anthems beautifully on the Sunday dutifully forgiving the fairly experimental conducting that was in front of them likened in my case to a jumbo jet trying to take off by a tenor who shall remain nameless Happily our week there was not the end Early in 2012 three boys from the choir will be joining us in London Stuart a bass at St Paul s has arranged for a couple of the trebles who really stood out to come and sing with the cathedral choir for a week which we hope will create an enduring memory for all the boys involved both Nigerian and British The head chorister in Lagos a twenty one year old called Joshua impressed with his musical aptitude and a fine countertenor voice during our lessons and he will also be flying over at the same time to study with Tim Travers Brown We hope this visit will not only fuel their enthusiasm for the cathedral choir but also encourage them to pass

  • J.S. Bach - Organ Works Volume II | CD Reviews | The Sixteen
    understanding Bring on the next volume soon please International Record Review This is quite brilliant organ playing with the most thrilling account of the D minor Toccata and Fugue I have ever heard It is also superbly recorded BBC Radio 3 CD Review You can feel Bach delighting in that dancing pedal part and Robert Quinney brings a lightness and improvisatory touch to the performance that seems spot on to me It s sometimes played with such earnest heaviness that it can crush the life out of the Toccata s verve not here the sound of the Metzler instrument in Trinity College Cambridge has been captured pretty well not too wet an acoustic so there is no smudging and smearing of Quinney s lively approach to the works To purchase the CD click here To purchase the album as a download click here Back to CD Reviews Home About News and Reviews CD Reviews J S Bach Organ Works Volume II About The Ensemble Harry Christophers Eamonn Dougan News and Reviews Current Vacancies Contact Us Home About Concerts Education Genesis Sixteen Shop Support The Sixteen Ltd Reg No 1930741 The Sixteen Prods Ltd Reg No 4252277 Registered Office Quadrant House
