DESPITE the road being closed between Nailsworth and Horsley, a capacity audience turned out to enjoy an exciting evening of Spanish music and dance entitled España ¡Olé! at the 3-in-1 space at St Martins Church, Horsley. The evening was brilliantly organised by Liz Johnson of The Cappella Singers, and featured The Cappella Singers, together with Sally Jenkins, harp, and Stroud’s own popular flamenco group, Suspiro Flamenco. The high demand for tickets meant that it was sold out a week before the event, but by some rearrangement of seating and tables, those on a waiting list for tickets were able to be accommodated.

THE title of the concert could have given the wrong impression as to its content. Stepping away from the usual orchestral fireworks one has come to expect from Ben Hoffnung the programme consisted of entirely string music of an emotional and dramatic nature. The performers on this occasion were the Bristol Ensemble well known contributors to both the Concert Series and Wotton Festival. The concert opened with Five Variants of Dives and Lazarus by Ralph Vaughan Williams, a set of variations on the folk song of that name, also arranged by the composer as the hymn tune Kingsfold. The warmth of the string tone was immediately apparent in the opening statement of the theme whilst the middle variations produced some ethereal solo violin sonority. Unison passages were crisp and clear whilst the lower strings produced a strident movement in the finale. The difficult harp obligati were particularly effective if occasionally lacking precision in ensemble.

BRIT ‘ Breakthough Act 2014’ nominees London Grammar came to Bristol’s O” Academy last night for the final date (rearranged) date of their current tour Opening with ‘Hey Now’, the capacity crowd fell silent, as if entranced by a siren’s charms, whilst Hannah Reid sliced through the silence with her amazing vocal range. It’s one hell of a way to open a set, but also an opening gambit that pays off, as the usually rowdy Academy crowd immediately gave the Nottingham University graduate the respect she deserves.
