TEN OF THE BUST (article first published : 2000-07-4)

Cutt Glas's Ten of the Bust (Tien van die Buuste) - five girls, two each, get it? - is the latest show from this excellent female a capella group which celebrates its tenth anniversary this year.

While I have seen this group on television and heard them on the airwaves, this is the first time I have actually been able to enjoy their performance in the flesh, as it were.

Perfectly matched with impeccable harmonies and immaculate phrasing, these five singers appear to be able to handle any music in any style - from a gently contemplative handling of to their vigorous Locomotive Breath which has a great ending. Then there's a hilarious "Who's Who in Parliament" sung to the Ascot Gavotte and a dig at those who have packed for Perth and, overcome with nostalgia, dream of the home country. Other impressive numbers were Born at the Right Time and Bye my Love. The St Aidan's Chapel venue provided the perfect ambience.

Cutt Glas is to present Ten of the Bust at the Kollig Festival at the Port Natal High School in September. You'll be daft if you miss it.
