Copland's In The Beginning, MacMillan's Seven Angels
Ex Cathedra, St. Giles' Cripplegate

With mezzo-soprano Martha McLorinan as the radiant soloist, the choir’s telling of the creation story seemed, with hindsight, the calm before the storm that was Seven Angels… It was a powerful, intense performance.

Anne Boleyn's Songbook
Alamire, Chapterhouse, York Minster

Three songs were given, in tellingly plaintive tone, by alto Martha McLorinan, to the accompaniment of Jacob Herringman’s gentle lute… Anne’s last letter to Henry from the Tower was followed by McLorinan in “O Deathe, Rock Me Asleep”, a heart-breaking plea.

Dido and Aeneas
La Nuova Musica, Theatre Royal Brighton

Augusta Hebbert and Martha McLorinan are aptly gleeful-at-pain as the two witches, plotting Dido’s downfall and the failure of love.

Mozart Requeim and Mass in C Minor
Cantemus, Dora Stoutzker Hall

The mezzo had fired proceedings with non-showy coloratura in the Laudamus te… Particularly lovely were the combination of Manahan Thomas, McLorinan and the tenor Guy Cutting in the Quoniam.

Mozart Requiem and Mass in C Minor
Cantemus, Dora Stoutzker Hall

Miss Thomas and fellow soloists mezzo Martha McLorinan, tenor Guy Cutting and baritone Julian Empett were on impressive form in the Requiem.

Mozart C Minor Mass
St. Alban's Bach Choir, St. Alban's Cathedral

Martha McLorinan (mezzo soprano) showed true class in the challenging passages of the Laudamus Te, and the Domine Deus duet with Rowan Pierce was delightful.
