Verdi Requiem Gorton Monastery – Mezzo soprano Joyce Tindsley immediately showed herself to be a class act in the following Liber Scriptus exhibiting an easy top to match her firm lower tones. Throughout the performance she showed her grasp of the nuances of the words as well as varying her dynamic. Importantly… her vocal clarity and intonation, throughout her range, cut through the sometimes dense textures of Verdi’s writing and the resonant acoustic. Seen and Heard International June 2017

Verdi Requiem Manchester – Joyce Tindsley had a beautiful mellow tone which resonantly soared over the orchestra.. The opening of the Agnus Dei provided a super illustration of the musicianship of the mezzo and soprano. The mezzo built on this with a beautiful opening for the Lux aeterna. She demonstrated a relaxed, almost graceful style to her delivery and she was a joy to watch. North West End Jan 2016
