    Sublime concert this afternoon at the Royal Festival Hall and fantastic to see the hall so full.

    Philharmonia under Ashkenazy playing a programme of Dukas / Ravel / Falla and Debussy.

    Most memorable concert I have been to in a while - if you get a chance to see pianist Jean-Efflam Bavouzet, don't hesitate; he was incandescent today!

    I hadn't heard of him either Martin, but his Falla was infalla-ble - boom boom!

    I went to see the Purcell Singers perform at St Martin in the Fields last night. Main reason I went was to hear Allegri's "Miserere" which was given a somewhat less than perfect performance sadly - I got the impression that the choir was slightly intimidated by the stature of the work. Anyway, the rest of the concert was much more confidently performed thankfully ...

    That's a shame. I have yet to hear the Miserere live, but I do keep a lookout for it.

    For me it's the greatest piece of choral music ever written - I was lucky enough to sing it as a chorister 35 years ago!

    I'm going to look out for a performance by the Tallis Scholars or the Sixteen and hopefully hear it close to the perfection it requires ...

    Can't argue with you there, although I would tentatively offer Vivaldi's Gloria, Mozart's Requiem, Mahler's 8th, Beethoven's 9th and Ligeti's Requiem for consideration.

    Never heard the Vivaldi or the Ligeti so will check them out - my favourite requiem must be the Faure - another that I have very happy memories of singing in the distant past ...

    If you like the Faure, do listen to the Durufle. Heart-stoppingly beautiful (he was Faure's pupil).
