Voskresenije return to Dunoon
The choir made a most successful return to Dunoon, on the Argyll coast of the Firth of Clyde. Holy Trinity church, we reckon, holds 100 people in comfort, but on a cold, clear evening in November we packed 120 into the audience. Comfortable or not, they were wildly enthusiastic. Voskresenije were in great form, and people loved them and their music. The acoustic remained lovely despite all the bodies, and the atmosphere was electric.
The choir have been visiting this church since 2001, though in order to ensure maximum impact the organisers have in recent years settled on a concert every two years. In a small town, it can be difficult to create a buzz if people become too used to having the event. This was probably the biggest audience we've had - and the music was well worth the effort!
