Some Client Feedback

A sublime alternative to hymns!

I just wanted to thank you for your great work to make R's funeral a smooth, memorable and enjoyable event. Everyone said how much they thoroughly enjoyed the celebration of R and remarked on how much we all think he would have enjoyed it and how annoyed he would have been to have been otherwise engaged. Many said how they wanted to applaud the arias! We were all grateful to have been spared groaning out a hymn and to be given a sublime alternative.

JT, Holy Trinity church Camberley

With your wonderful singing we certainly didn't need a choir

A huge thank you. You were absolutely brilliant. With your wonderful singing we certainly didn't need a choir. Everyone said how fantastic you made the celebration of mum's life. Such a wonderful idea. I will be singing your praises far and wide.  Thank you once again.

MM, Wokingham Baptist Church

Your singing was more than beautiful, you created a wonderful spiritual atmosphere which was so moving

Thank you for making the service to celebrate my mother’s life so very special. Your singing was more than beautiful, you created a wonderful spiritual atmosphere which was so moving. I really appreciated the way you seamlessly eased into each part of the service when you were singing. It meant a great deal to me that whilst reading, I glanced up and noticed you sitting discreetly to the side - truly listening to the thoughts I was sharing. I shall always remember the way you connected with me and my mother whilst you sang. To do so with such respect and sensitivity is an incredible gift. You were so easy to speak to on the phone whilst we were planning mum’s service. It was reassuring and helpful to have your thoughts and suggestions. Thank you for being with us and sharing your special gifts that day. You made mum’s farewell an occasion which gave everyone something very beautiful and positive to reflect upon; a wonderful memory for each of us, which my mother would have really appreciated and enjoyed.

DS, St James’s Church, Southampton

Your solos were the icing on the cake

Thank you Toni, you singing was truly special and your leading of the hymns gave encouragement to us to join in. But having your solos was the icing on the cake. Truly memorable.
