After last year’s great success, L’Aventura returned in triumph to Brighton this evening, delighting an even bigger audience with a Christmassy flavour to their programme of African and Brazilian music. The excellent quartet of Portuguese singers delivered an exciting, full-bodied sound. The musical monks of the monastery of Santa Cruz at Coimbra must have been a jolly lot if this concert represents their style. Even the serious religious numbers, enriched with the philosophy of St Augustine, had more than a hint of the dance which just bubbled up from the ever supportive accompaniments. It made for a really joyful concert!
