Can you please pass on my personal thanks to Mike, who I unfortunately didn’t get to say goodbye to on the day due having to get to crematorium.  He was incredible and really made the service so special, it was a beautiful tribute to a beautiful lady. Thank you again for all your help.” ...continue reading

Pinner, Middlesex
Guitarist - January 2020

“I am very slow to email you to thank you for putting together all the music for my Mother’s Service of Thanksgiving.  It really made all the difference between being a lovely service and being a really exceptional one. It is such a beautiful church and the music was perfect for the setting, for Mum and for all of us. Several people have written and said how wonderful the choir and the music were. I have never had to put together a memorial service before (thank goodness) and my father and I were so grateful for your help and advice. You really helped structure the whole event and give balance to the service as well as helping with the detail of the proofing. The choir sang so beautifully and I now frequently listen to recordings of both the requiem and O Magnum Mysterium  - I wish of course that we had recorded your choir singing everything so perfectly. A huge and belated thank you for your advice, calmness, professional expertise and most of all for helping us even begin to do justice to Mum’s life.” ...continue reading

Greenwich, London
Choir, Organist & Director - November 2019

“I can’t thank you enough for the music which you brought to our service last Sunday. Every single piece was played and sung perfectly and the choice of music, with your help, was absolutely appropriate to the occasion. Julian’s wife Beryl was absolutely delighted with it all, and seemed to find it more joyous than upsetting which is perfect. Please pass on my congratulations to all of your colleagues, with a special thank you to Will the organist. The organ music was an extremely important part of the service to us and he played magnificently. And thanks to you for your kindness at what has been a rather difficult time for the family. Here’s hoping that the next time we call on your services, it’s for a wedding! With very best regards” ...continue reading

Twickenham
Choir, Organist & Director - October 2019

“Further to our conversation, I cannot describe in words (or music!) what a difference you and the choir made to my father’s funeral service. From the attention to detail in the planning stages and the advice on the music choices, to the skillful and uplifting execution of the hymns on the day of the funeral – it was flawless especially given our geographical distance (New York and London). We were inundated at the wake with queries of “who were that wonderful choir – they sang like angels”. Indeed you did. I knew from my wedding how talented a group of artists you are and with my expectations already raised, you exceeded them again. You raised the overall service to another level and it was the most fitting tribute we could give my father. Thank you also for your flexibility in arranging “More” for both the organ and for a choir – not sure how your talented organist got those notes out of that organ! Frankly, I thought you sang it better than Andy Williams. Thank you again to you, the choir and the organist for making a difficult day memorable for all the right reasons.” ...continue reading

West Sussex
Choir, Organist & Director - June 2019

“I am so sorry that I did not see you in person to say hello & then a huge thank you for all your help & guidance with the music for my husband's Celebration of his life. My husband loved music, particularly choral. He would so have loved the music. Every single person that I spoke to commented on the music and the singing. Few people knew that there was going to be such beautiful music, seeing all the heads turn as the L’Inviti Singers started to sing was magical. Having a superb organist was perfect. With you conducting it made the service a wonderful experience. A magical send off for Brian. Thank you. A comment that was made in an email “I don’t think anyone will forget the L’Inviti Singers, what voices, absolutely spine tingling, reaching deep into one’s emotional core”. It made the service perfect, thank you. The vicar wrote to me to say it was so wonderful to have such beautiful singing in the church. Once again thank you so much for pointing us in the right direction.” ...continue reading

I am also grateful for your assistance and suggestions while I was in the planning stage and rather feeling my way.” ...continue reading

Memorial Service, Notting Hill, London
Choir of 16, Organist & Director - January 2019

“Your music yesterday was more beautiful than anything I could have hoped for. We are all eternally grateful to you, your choir and the organist. I could single one or two things out such as Nella Fantasia or the Lord is my Shepherd but to be quite honest each piece of music played or sung was of such quality that it blew my mind again and again! I honestly had no idea that it could be that good I think because I had never heard that calibre of singing in a village church. It was highly emotional throughout and the most fitting tribute to my niece and sister in law. I know that hearing music that beautiful is good for the soul and in this especially tragic case, healing for all those present. It was incredibly powerful and I know that every single person there felt it. Thank you and your team for everything you did to make yesterday everything we had hoped it would be and so much more.” ...continue reading

Funeral in Petworth
Choir, Organist & Director - November 2018

“I cannot tell you how delighted I was with the music. The quality exceeded all expectations and I certainly envisage employing your services again – hopefully for a happier occasion. So many people commented on the music: “spine-tingling” and “I want the singers for my own funeral” are among the many plaudits received. I must admit I’d agreed that I may or may not speak, depending on how I felt at the time, but I was personally so uplifted by the music that I found myself able. The whole occasion was the best possible “send-off” I could have wished for and I do sincerely thank you the enormous contribution you and the other musicians made.” ...continue reading

Funeral in Staffordshire
Choir, Organist & Director - October 2018

“I am writing to say thank you for providing the wonderful music at my mother’s funeral on Tuesday. I felt we were able to honour the woman my mother was in a manner she would have approved of, and the music was a large part of that. Many of the guests commented on quality of the music after the service and said how beautiful and moving it was. Please pass on my thanks to the musicians. Thank you also for your advice in the preparation of the service sheets and helping us to shoehorn so much music into the service.” ...continue reading

Alan Stephen, Funeral Director, St Monan’s Church
Fife New Orleans Jazz Band - September 2018

“I would like to thank you and the choir for the beautiful singing at my aunt’s funeral at the Italian Church on Saturday. It was marvellous and would have very much pleased my aunt who sang as soprano soloist at the Italian Church for over twenty years and who had definite views on music! It was at her personal request that the Pie Jesu had to be that of Niedermeyer. I think it was a new piece to most people at the funeral and they were completely entranced by it. Thank you again for helping to give my aunt a fitting and memorable farewell.” ...continue reading

Putney Vale Crematorium
Choir, Organist & Director - September 2018

“Thank you so much for yesterday. I had lots of appreciative comments from both my family and many other guests. I don’t think anyone has experienced having such singing at a funeral – certainly not in a crematorium (except for twenty years ago…)! It was beautiful in every way. Most people knew the Faure and enjoyed that familiarity but I don’t think the spiritual was so well known: my sister-in-law confessed that she wasn’t sure she was going to like it but she said it was absolutely lovely. And so it was. Someone else said they really appreciated the mixture of things they knew and things they didn’t.” ...continue reading

Funeral in Surrey
Choir & Organist - June 2018

“A heartfelt thanks from all the family for the music at dad’s funeral yesterday. It was so beautiful, exceeding our expectations by far. You were all worth twice the fee, some of the most gifted and talented singers we have ever heard, beautifully directed. We were very lucky to have found you. The singers made a MASSIVE difference to the hymns, which can sound a little sad with a small group of mourners who can’t sing. No one who was present will forget the lovely singing. The Miserere was stunning, the best rendition I have ever heard, and suited I think by the acoustics of our lovely if simple church. Very many thanks for all your care and help with the service order, we really do appreciate it“ ...continue reading

Choir & Organist - May 2017

“You and the choir were absolutely fantastic, and made what was a difficult time something I can look back on with fond memories. My mother would have been delighted with the singing and the fact you enabled all of us to sing with gusto to the hymns. Every single person enthused over the singing and I know it is something they will all talk about in years to come. It was a truly beautiful sound and our only regret for the entire day was that we had not recorded the choir so we could remind ourselves of how uplifting you all were.“ ...continue reading
