I had the privilege of accompanying a quality soloist and the Somercotes Choral Society in this. It is intensely rewarding to play and to put as much beauty as possible into it. Our soloist breathed life into all the phrases and it was a rare joy for me to listen and feel what he was going to do when so I could match it. His songs accompanied by ano were so musical. The micro-dynamics and ebbs and flows within the phrases in the Neapolitan songs took the music off the page – all done with impeccable taste, no corny exaggeration. I think some music requires more of this treatment than others.
