The Crofton Singers


"There are a couple of good reasons why I drive about 30 miles to hear a concert by the Crofton Singers. First, they are a talented group of people with evident enthusiasm for the music they sing and secondly, the music they sing is varied. The concerts I've attended have included works by composers of the 16th century through to the present day with a consequent difference in style and musician-ship. The Crofton Singers is an amateur choir and, under the very competent direction of Simon Pusey, has achieved an excellent sound. Although we live in an age when we can almost instantly access the finest recordings of just about everything, there is a freshness about a live concert that enables a direct connection with, and a welcome opportunity to focus on listening to, the music."

- I think! The occasion was a meeting of
the UN Association in Ilford.
