Feedback from the organisers:

I felt I must drop you a line to thank you for the most entertaining concert last night.  The programme was well judged for the audience and slickly presented whilst maintaining a very relaxed atmosphere.  Please pass on my best wishes to all concerned.
 
I have not yet  received a full accounting but we seem to have taken over £500 on the door (with tickets and raffle) which is a splendid help towards our goal of improving our toilet and kitchen facilities.

The two choirs and Enigma gave faultless performances to a full church. The evening raised £1207 for church funds.

Monsignor Faley commented:

The two choirs performed in harmony with each other and there were no soloist  just everyone singing for each other. Your performance was not just clever but also wise. Wise because it had depth, emotion and you communicated with each other and your audience. Singing without accompaniment is the most difficult type of singing and tonight both of the choirs were magnificent.
