Mass in Blue

“A stunningly flexible voice, flawless musicianship and as if that wasn’t enough
a lovely personality too! Thanks for your wonderful singing!”
Will Todd, composer of Mass in Blue

 “Voice like an angel that has power when she needs it, expression, clarity, can soar to the top of any vaulted ceiling and a range that allows her to hit top B flats for fun. An incredible sound, so suited to the music that Todd might have written it for just for her.”
Edinburgh Fringe Review, August 17th 2015, Tim Wilcock
