Sonoro, St. Martin in the fields

Martha McLorinan’s focussed yet richly vibrato-led tone brought dark strength to Domine Deus, Agnus Dei.

Rachmaninoff's Vespers
Ex Cathedra, Ampleforth Abbey, Ryedale Festival

The alto soloist in Blagoslovi, Dushe Moya was simply captivating; I just loved the velvety quality of tone as the choir provided a musical cushion, the gentlest of support.

Martha McLorinan sang the part of the Angel with commitment and feeling… a sympathetic guide to Ellicott’s Gerontius.

The Dream of Gerontius
Ripon Choral Society, Ripon Cathedral

After the interval, a beautiful theme on the strings introduced the musings of Gerontius and sweet responses of the Angel, sung by McLorinan… This was a powerful performance and was rewarded by enthusiastic applause.

Handel's Messiah
English Chamber Orchestra, Cadogan Hall

Finest of the vocal soloists was an outstanding Martha McLorinan… She edged close to Handel’s operas in the B sections of ‘But who may abide the day of his coming?’ and ‘He was despised and rejected,’although never too much. There was contrast and continuity, then, and Charles Jennen’s text was ably communicated.
