“Thank you very much for your beautiful singing at L’s funeral. I was holding my daughter’s hand for the hymn and neither of us could sing as we were so choked. Suddenly we heard above all the strength and beauty of the most colourful enrichment to our grief. We found our voices and sang with you ’till the end.
As professional singers, our soloists have years of training that enable them to sing in almost any situation. So, they are able to sing beautifully at a service even when most of the congregation may be in tears. As professional singers, they are able to detach themselves a little from proceedings, enabling them to give their best performance.
And we find it not just the family who appreciate what we do; often, guests come to us afterwards and say how the singing helped then say goodbye, which is perhaps the ultimate compliment.
