Temporarily deprived of the Edwardian surroundings of the Usher Hall, Edinburgh Royal Choral Union turned instead on Sunday to Edinburgh University's vast Victorian dome for what was a potentially fascinating programme of music.

Though Berlioz's Requiem, the perfect masterpiece for so grandly resonant a building, was absent, and Vierne's unsensational Messe Solennelle proved not much of a substitute, Michael Bawtree's choice of works was otherwise thoroughly resourceful. With the combined forces of ERCU and the Liverpool Welsh Choral at his disposal, he had all the singers he needed, and the hall's Hope-Jones/Willis organ gave them rock-solid support. Morley Whitehead was at the console, triumphantly conflating Vierne's demands for two different instruments.

However, it was Kodaly's Laudes Organi - "in Praise of Organs" - that gave the event the music it deserved. Written for the Atlanta Chapter of the American Guild of Organists, this exhilarating summing-up of Kodaly's output of choral music was presented with ample fervour. So, in more sentimental vein, was Gorecki's Totus Tuus, from the man who gave us the Symphony of Sorrowful Songs, which left the serenity of Faure's Requiem to bind the concert together.

Lisa Swayne and Richard Latham, two refreshing young voices from the RSAMD, were an asset, as were the welcome moments of jauntiness provided by the Edinburgh Youth Choir under its new director Dominic Peckham.
