Praise for Vocal Futures’ Matthew Passion

June 22nd, 2012

I have listened to the St. Matthew Passion and have the following to say:?A moving,visionary and dramatic musical experience that crystalises the heart of the meaning of the text – outlined in St Matthew?s account of the Passion of Christ. The vehicle for all this shines through the sublime, peerless and uniquely inspired performance given by all the collaborating artists led by Suzi Digby.?I’ve heard a lot of performances but nothing that rivals this one.

Suzi conduction the Voices Foundation Children’s Choir at Covent Garden and for Yehudi Menuhin in Gstaad
