Well done on putting on yet another truly fantastic festival, beautifully planned and full of very special moments.

Gorgeous programming, as usual - thought-provoking, mind-expanding, lovely!

The programming & the performances are very special.

The best ever song festival – so many talents and so much inspiring music on display. It was all world class, but if I had to choose a favourite from the whole thing it would be my personal love of the emotional Finzi settings of Hardy in James Newby’s wonderfully varied and insightful evening – what a talent! Or Alison Rose’s “Illuminations” – another favourite piece but in a spectacular performance with the Corelli – and wasn’t the tenor good!  You should be very proud and pleased to bring all this to Lewes.

What a treat yesterday’s lunchtime concert was.  I can’t thank you enough.  Fabulous repertoire – most of which I didn’t know – beautifully played and sung.  

-A.S.

What a huge success I thought the Festival was. Really interesting programmes and such well-chosen, brilliant young players. It was all delightful and last night’s ‘Illuminations’ was absolutely electrifying.
