Here are some of the comments I recorded after our concert, while we were tucking in to a delicious buffet.
Mary: I thought it was absolutely fantastic. Apart from the sound - the way that your bells match your scarves and the glitter; it’s lovely, the presentation. But the tunes were wonderful. I will say that my granddaughter plays the clarinet. When I listen to her practising, she always has to finish with ‘Ode to Joy’ because it’s my favourite, so to hear that was wonderful.
Molly: It’s the first time I’ve seen bell ringers and they’re absolutely fantastic. Really, really good and I would love to see them again.
Ann: I think they’re fantastic. And they all look so smart together and looking so happy. You’re happy with what you’re doing.
Be: I think it’s been a wonderful evening. Years and years ago, I did learn bell ringing but it was nothing like as fantastic as now. And, of course, you’re more sophisticated now than we ever were. A wonderful, wonderful evening.
Angela: I think the evening has been fantastic. Really thoroughly enjoyed it. Fabulous sounds and we’ve actually managed to have a go at the bells and I’ve thoroughly enjoyed it. Very, very good.
Jackie: Amazing. Amazing. I especially liked the chimes; they were wonderful. And when you do the combination of the two it’s stunning, stunning.
Helen: I thought it was absolutely amazing. I just wanted to close my eyes and float away on something like a lullaby. Just tremendous.
