Program pure delight

“The real surprise of the evening was the success of the three Shakespeare settings sung by Victoria’s own Cathy Berberian, soprano, Catherine Lewis. I was not, I hasten to add, surprised at the level of the performance: Lewis is one of those people who could sing a shopping list and spellbind her audience and Dunn’s accompaniments were as sensitive as one could wish for.”
