"To Whom It May Concern:

I have worked with Emma on numerous occasions as a member of my ensemble EXAUDI, specialists in contemporary music. Emma is firstly a great singer, with an astonishingly flexible voice capable of making white (but deeply expressive) tone in Renaissance sacred polyphony one minute and a warm, soloistic sound the next. Her range is also extraordinary and she possesses the best and most reliable super-high notes (up to at least top F) I have encountered. Her musicianship is exceptional, her reading (even in fantastically complex scores by Finnissy et al.) and command of style are both excellent; finally she is a consummate professional, reliable in all ways. I can't recommend her highly enough."

James Weeks

Artistic Director, EXAUDI

"I have always admired Emma's artistry as a soloist both in the BBC Singers and as a soprano in her own right. Her technical assurance and musicality were particularly apparent when I was asked to accompany her in a recital last summer. No matter the style, language or emotional core of the music, Emma galvanised the audience and commanded their total attention throughout. She deserves more opportunity (in general) to take on solo roles as she has the presence and overall ability to stand alongside the best. I am happy to talk further should it be necessary in her support."

David Hill

Chief conductor BBC Singers 2007-2017
