Reviewers praise Elmer Iseler Singers and Amadeus Choir for Mozart Requiem with TSO
Below are reviews of Lydia Adams’ choirs performances at the Mozart@260 Festival, January 21-23:
"... it is a tribute to the combined forces of the Amadeus Choir and the Elmer Iseler Singers that they managed to perform the
piece off book, without a score. ... I wouldn’t have missed the performance for the world. " Robert Harris, The Globe and Mail
"Amadeus Choir & Elmer Iseler Singers, under the direction of Lydia Adams, sang the entire work by memory... Their voices
were divine,... " Michael Vincent, The Toronto Star
"...Adams’ choirs made the most exquisite readings I’ve ever heard (live or on record), their Latin words enunciated more
clearly to my ear than that of most of the soloists." Leslie Barcza, barczablog.com
" The Amadeus Choir and Elmer Iseler Singers under Lydia Adams provided the fervent choral forces needed. ... the Choir did
remarkably well, especially from memory! ... a performance that will stay in memory for a long time. "
Joseph So, La Scena Musicale
