Christian sang for a service I was conducting in Brighton. Christian sang brilliantly, and it was a real pleasure to work with him.

I frequently employ Christian Goursaud as a consort singer in a freelance capacity. He has a fabulous and very flexible voice that he can tailor to any ensemble/choral/consort requirement allied to stunning musicianship. His ability to read and interpret at sight is first class. He is thoroughly reliable and punctual and a fine team player. He is naturally empathic and alert to polyphonic and choral textures yet he can easily produce wonderful solo work. He also is very aware of the nature of any engagement and always behaves appropriately and sensitively. Christian has a wide knowledge of suitable repertoire for secular/private/public concert or service planning purposes. His repertoire could not be more inclusive; spanning chant (he is fluent in various notation schemes) and early sacred music through to the very latest contemporary works even encompassing close harmony. He has a presence on stage that belies his excellent former work in opera choruses. I commend his singing and approachable character to anyone concerned with employing professional singers.
