Stunning recital of Shakespeare inspired songs
9 December 2016
Rebecca's recital on Wednesday showcased a delightful array of songs under her theme 'Shakespeare in Love'.
Where the bee sucks by Sullivan was bright and clear followed by the meaningful Ophelia's Song (Maconchy) which Rebecca sang with a beautiful tone. Quilter's It was a lover and his lass was sung with energy and spirit. Rebecca exhibited clear diction and a real sense of enjoyment.
In Take, O take those lips away the audience were treated to soaring high notes. More contemporary pieces ended the recital, with the powerful Somewhere by Bernstein closing the recital. This was sung with strong communication and the climatic style was embraced by Rebecca with both flair and understanding.
