We are delighted every time we are able to see The Meanwood Ensemble perform; they make a refreshing change to the live music scene locally as they are so versatile and the content of the performances is so varied, mixing well-known classics with modern interpretations and moving pieces. Their beautiful voices, covering an amazing range, intertwine in haunting harmony. Love them!

I was delighted when it was suggested that the Meanwood Ensemble might come and do an evening of reflection for Remembrance Sunday. Music and poetry can often express the inexpressible much more eloquently than words, and so it proved to be. Although the forces were small, just four voices, the sound filled the church beautifully. Sometimes a quartet of voices can sound a little cold and detached, but not this group. They sang with conviction and passion, matching beautifully the occasion, modulating their sound to match the words and the occasion. The music that they sang was varied, and the choice suited a mixed audience , with something for every one to engage with. They also stayed behind after the recital and engaged with the audience, and this was much appreciated.
