By far the greatest part of Lesley-Jane’s concert diary is oratorio work, and her extensive repertoire encompasses the mainstream panoply - she frequently performs works by Bach, Handel, Haydn, Mozart, Mendelssohn, Elgar and Verdi - as well as many more unusual pieces. She is also an exuberant performer when required, such that she is a popular choice for works such as Orff’s Carmina Burana, Rossini’s Petite Messe solennelle, the Poulenc Gloria, and David Fanshawe’s African Sanctus.
Lesley-Jane is also in demand as a “vocal concerto” soloist, particularly from choirs and orchestras desiring a highlight feature in their concert. Her affinity with Mozart's Exsultate, jubilate and Bach's solo cantata Jauchzett Gott makes her a popular choice for this task.
interest in new music has led to several choirs either
commissioning new works, or performing challenging 20th
century repertoire. Recent performances have included Alistair
Jones A Prodigal Son,
Joseph Phibbs Tenebrae
commissioned by the St Albans Bach Choir, Richard
Mirror of Perfection,
Pehkonen’s Ode to St
Cecilia, Antonín Tučapský’s Kohelet,
and Michael Finnissy’s Favourite
Poets commissioned by Chanctonbury Chorus.
