What People Say

"A high spot [was] the gorgeous, rich bass of Christopher Foster in The Trumpet Shall Sound."
Handel Messiah: Newbury Chamber Choir, St John's Church, December 2017

"This was an intriguing, occasionally humorous and very moving concert which closed the festival in a fitting dazzle."
English Music Festival in Yorkshire, English Song recital, closing concert October 2017

"Christopher Foster, bass, in his solo Mors Stupebit left us in no doubt that grim death was nigh.  Also, his contribution to the trio Lux Aeterna was gorgeously resonant and fruity."
Verdi Requiem: Benson Choral Society, Dorchester Abbey, November 2016
