I performed at St. George's inside Windsor Castle and the Royal Standard told us that the Queen was in residence. It was an amazing feeling to know that she has her own special pew just a short distance from where I was singing.

Andrea has a warm, lyrical voice and sings with great musicality. She demonstrates technical clarity and never loses the emotional sense of what she is singing. I look forward to her next performance!

How lovely to hear Andrea Maxson singing at St. Augustine's at the start of the Christmas Tree Festival. A particular favourite for me was her delightful rendition of The Little Road to Bethlehem, which rose gently to fill the church as it reached its climax. I look forward to future performances.
