"Thank-you for providing such an exciting, fun, and informative day for our choir! I heard so many enthusiastic and positive comments afterwards -- you were a big hit! Even on the challenging Benedictus, where more than half the group were sight-reading it, you really brought it along in that short time. I have to say that now I have "Take Five" on the brain all the time -- I think that's called an 'earworm'! It was also great to learn your 'To the One Who Listens' -- a lovely piece! And we never get tired of singing your amazing 'Peace Prayer.'"
