I recently had the privilege of working with Linda when she was the soprano soloist in my performance of Haydn's Creation in Cheltenham. She gave a superb performance, displaying a versatile technique and expressing the varied colours of the music...

Linda has a beautiful voice with the flexibility to perform all the major choral works. She is always well prepared and works well with other soloists and conductor.
