Reviews

"Armagh City Choir have performed several of Cherith’s works and as an Irish composer, she ranks high in my estimation. As a singer herself, Cherith knows and understands what singers can do. This is reflected in voice range and accessibility, line, phrasing textures and sensitivity to text. Her imaginative use of rhythm is an exciting component of her work."
Adrian Brunton, Conductor of Armagh City Choir.


"The programme included a piece written by Cherith Boyle who also conducted the performance. “Lullaby” was a most effective piece, well written with flowing melodic lines for all four voice parts. Cherith will have been rightly pleased with the choir’s response to her music.The audience certainly enjoyed it.."
Review by Joe McKee as appeared in the Irish Times, December 2000.

PLAYING ENGAGEMENTS


At the opening of my exhibition "From Cape to Cairo " in the Island Arts Centre, Lisburn, Cherith played a wonderful selection on her harp, so many people commented on the diversity of playing and overall repertoire which added greatly to the ambience of the evening...It was a pleasure to have such a talented artist like Cherith to perform and I will certainly be recomending her to others.
Osmond Mairs, Artist.

"We were delighted to have Cherith Boyle play the harp during our drinks reception at the National LEADER+ Conference in South Antrim on the 19th September 2006. Her music was magical and I would highly recommend her music for any other engagements…"

Just a short note to thank you for performing at our recent Poetry evening at Clotworthy Arts Centre. Your playing of the harp provided a really atmospheric backdrop and the beautiful selection of pieces really complemented the poets' work. Also your professionalism and high standard of musicianship was very much in evidence throughout the evening, I hope we have the opportunity to work with you again.

"Cherith created the perfect ambience for our special day. She pulled at the heart strings of everyone present with her skilful harp playing and displayed what an outstanding pianist she is as she accompanied our soloist and congregation. Her music was magical. We cannot thank her enough."
