I just wanted to drop you a note to thank you and say what an awesome job the choir did at our wedding ceremony last month. They are a very talented bunch and gave a real energy to the ceremony, turning it into a proper celebration. The music also helped to make it a more relaxed and informal atmosphere than your normal catholic ceremony and Vanessa walking down the aisle to the song you’d learnt was a truly special moment. Please pass on our thanks to the singers and feel free to use this as a testimonial.
We just wanted to write a quick note to say how utterly awesome VWGC were at our wedding. The church was buzzing and the congregation were spontaneously bursting into rounds of applause all the way through the service! Every guest I spoke to said how brilliant they were and their voices were beautiful in every way.
Thank you so much for sorting everything out, it was the perfect service thanks to VWGC!
We just wanted to send you a card to let you know just how brilliant you are & how thankful we are to have had you sing on the most important day of our lives.
Perfect performance from gospel choir….
From soul to rock, Motown to Handel, almost every conceivable kind of music was given the gospel choir treatment by the Bath-based Vocal Works choir, when it visited the Wiltshire Music Centre.
Full of the kind of bubbling energy you would expect from a gospel choir, the 47-strong outfit tirelessly danced their way through the evening while belting out the songs under the leadership of musical director Tim King.
True to the democratic gospel tradition, there were no stars of the show – with most of the choir members getting a turn in the spotlight to take the lead.
The classic Amazing Grace was performed with extraordinary clarity, raising cheers from the usually reserved Wiltshire Music Centre audience – and a solo performance of Music of Heaven in the second half of the show even provoked a spontaneous standing ovation.
But the highlight of the evening for me was a note-perfect rendition of Leonard Cohen’s classic Hallelujah – with its swelling climax, it’s a song that lends itself brilliantly to gospel reinterpretation. 10/10
Thank you so much for your beautiful performance at our wedding. You were all fantastic, and we’ve had so many lovely compliments about you. Songbird and Ave Maria in the church gave us all goosebumps, and our guests loved the background tunes whilst sipping their Pimms during the reception! We’d thoroughly recommend you to anyone wanting an extra special touch for their big day.
Now the dust has finally settled after our wedding I just wanted to send you a little note to say thank you for singing & playing so beautifully at our wedding on the 4th September 2010. We had the most amazing day and the choir really added something very personal and special to our service. We will have to come and see you at one of your concerts next year.
Thank you so much for providing such great music at our ceremony in Orchardleigh. The choir was amazing! It was everything we imagined and more and made our day so special. All our guests comments were complimentary of you and the talk of the day.
May I take this opportunity to offer my heartfelt gratitude on your wonderful performance on Saturday 12th September at The Ashes, Endon. Perfect pitch and perfect delivery performed by all. I was mesmerised. In fact I am still singing now…..and I must commend you for your professionalism throughout the day. The ladies looked stunning and the gentlemen handsome.
ps When I get married there is only one choir to choose…….yours……I just have to find a girlfriend first……
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making our day so special. The choir were perfect – all we could ever wish for and more. Everyone has commented on how fantastic they were and that they made the service. It was so nice to see so many smiling, happy faces when I reached the altar. Once again thank you all for your time and effort in making our one special day just amazing.
A heartfelt thank you for stunning everyone of our guests at the wedding! I will never forget trying not to ruin my make up as the soloist started singing Kissing You. I had always dreamt of having a choir at my wedding and I was not disappointed! You truly made the most special part of the day even more special.
Well, what can I say about Vocal Works on Friday? They were magnificent!!
What a wonderful contribution you all made to what was a wonderful service for Jinny and Tom…thank you so much!! I think my very favourite moment, though, was “Seasons of Love”…it was just perfect. Please thank EVERYONE for making the service so memorable.
Thank you so much for singing at our wedding. It was truly amazing and everyone has said how wonderful they thought you were. The singers were amazing and made the service exactly what we wanted it to be.
Just wanted to say a big thank you for providing such wonderful music for our wedding. The choir were a real hit and made our ceremony so special.
Just a note to say a massive thank you for singing at our wedding. The choir were fantastic and exceeded all expectations. All of our guests loved it and Oh Happy Day was a real highlight of our wedding day. We couldn’t believe how good you were!
The choir were absolutely amazing. They were very professional, extremely friendly, lively and created a happy atomosphere to the ceremony. I had so many comments on how good they were and how it was lovely to sit and listen to them while they were waiting for me to enter the room. Mind you during the first song I spent the whole time trying to hold back the tears! We were very impressed!
I’m just so grateful to them for creating a lovely atmosphere, to what was the perfect day. I will definitely be passing on your details to any of my friends who are getting married!
Wow! What an amazing choir, what a fabulous uplifting sound! We were absolutely blown away by you guys! Thank you so much for adding the atmosphere and emotion to an already emotional day. When you sang Amazing Grace in the chapel I just choked up. We have had so many compliments from our guests about VWGC, they thought you were just fantastic. I’ll certainly be recommending you to anyone looking for a fantastic choir on their wedding day.
Thank you so much to you and VWGC for making our day so special. All our guests thought you were wonderful and said how you made the ceremony even more meaningful and intimate.
The congregation thought you were fantastic and Daryl and I were so pleased with the performances. All our friends are still talking about the choir! Thanks again.
On behalf of my wife and our guests, I wanted to express our huge thanks for Vocal Works Gospel Choir’s performance at our wedding on 3rd January. So many of our guests have remarked on how much they enjoyed the singing and how many of them were moved to tears. One person even remarked how they could not imagine going to another wedding without Vocal Works performing. I cannot thank you enough and I would have no hesitation in recommending Vocal Works to anyone wanting to add that special touch to their wedding day.
I’ve never seen so many people sing with such permanently happy enthusiasm.
Apart from being exceptionally joyful, there seemed to be no end to the number of soloists who stepped into the limelight throughout the evening. Little wonder they produced such great music with that much talent to rely on.
Cheered back for two encores, which the equally enthusiastic audience would have preferred to be even more, the VWGC closed with the old Jimmy Cliff song, Higher and Higher. Very appropriate, as this choir are certainly up there in popularity and ability.
Thank you to you and the rest of the choir, you were all absolutely brilliant, sounded amazing and made our day even more special. My boss attended my wedding and thought you were all so good she will book you for the launch of the new weekly newspaper. I have many friends that now want to get married just so that they can listen to the choir again!
We had to send you a note to thank you and VWGC for performing at our wedding. It was truly one of the most happy, magical moments to hear the beautiful music and singing. It still takes my breath away to think about how stunning the choir were. Asking you all to join us was one of the best decisions we made in planning our wedding – thank you!
Thank you for your beautiful performance at our wedding. It was better than we could have ever wished for.
I wanted to say how wonderful your choir was during the ceremony. The lady who sang Kissing You for the bride’s arrival had the most amazing voice (as did the others of course). Of all the ceremonies I’ve seen at Leigh Court over the last 4 years it was by far the most memorable one down to the beautiful music. If anyone asks us to recommend a choir for their wedding ceremony I’d be pleased to tell them about you!
Thank you so very much for performing at our wedding on Saturday – it surpassed all expectations (which were already high!!!). Your contribution to our wedding was just fantastic and definitely one of the highlights. Thank you (and your choir) so much for helping to make the day utterly exceptional!!
Awesome! It was also good to see and hear enthusiastic men with great sounding voices. Your voices blended so beautifully in what is an acoustically challenging building. You also all looked so bright and enthusiastic. It is clear that one of the strengths of your choir is the breadth of experience and professionalism. I heard lots of positive comments afterwards – both about the whole choir and the soloists. The pianist seems to get taken for granted, but you were great too!
VWGC sang at my wedding and were a dream come true. Having a gospel choir to add to the service was the only thing we knew we wanted from the very beginning of planning. We instantly felt confident they could realise our dream. To us the service was the most important part of the day and they provided the magic that made the hairs on the back of your neck stand up. I’d been listening to Ave Maria in the car in the run up to the big day so that I could get used to hearing it without bursting into tears! When they sang Higher and Higher for our recessional, everyone stood up and started clapping along. It was a very happy and lovely day thanks to Vocal Works Gospel Choir.
Just a note to say a huge thank you for making the service extra special. We had lots of feedback from our guests who thought you were all amazing.
You not only all looked gorgeous and handsome but, wow, sounded incredible!!! You were truly amazing and our guests will be talking about you for many years to come. All of you made our day so special and made Tom very emotional whilst standing at the alter..I also wanted to thank you for your improvisation with the delays… They were seamless and my delayed arrival went unnoticed…
I really cannot begin to tell you how you have made us both feel….getting emotional writing this now. Thanks again for everything and keep in touch!!
