I really enjoyed singing with you and would love to come back and do so again! I thought the chorus did a fantastic job.

— Tom Lilburn, Countertenor
The choir was terrific, and I was blown away by the period instrumentalists. I still have the sound of the baroque flutes ringing in my ear!
— Sylvia Fairley
A wonderful concert at St Mary le Tower with some challenging pieces that the choir and organist accomplished with real verve. A great evening.
— Sally Wilden
Ipswich Chamber Choir were extremely impressive, and managed to pull off a diverse programme of emotional music with aplomb. The strong rapport between them and Benedict was palpable in the rehearsal and concert, and they were a pleasure to sing with.

— Robbie Haylett, Baritone
It was a great pleasure to work with such a talented musician as Benedict. Ipswich Chamber Choir performed with great musicality and impressively brought to life their challenging concert repertoire. I am sure that there are many exhilarating concert seasons to come under Benedict’s assured baton.
