Praise for your work with the singers continues to be voiced. Everyone who has spoken to me or sent e-mail messages has expressed how much they enjoyed the session. One of my choristers last night explained how satisfying it was to have vocal matters discussed in terms which amateur singers could understand. No one was talked down to, a sensible choice of music was well used to demonstrate typical choral challenges and useful vocal modelling was offered. Basic physical issues (such as posture, sitting and standing) were not ignored and a positive atmosphere was created throughout with much humour among the many bons mots! One singer e-mailed me to say how the time had flown for him. Another - a young blind tenor who is a real enthusiast - e-mailed to express surprise that we had been able to call on the services of such an eminent expert.
