Matthew was a pleasure to work with. His singing was brilliant, and his correspondence was very professional and punctual. I would be delighted to work with Matthew again in the future.

From other customers:

Opera D, 5 years ago

But the dazzling find was Matthew Palmer’s lean and hungry Marullo: a truly arresting voice, rich-toned, and with an extra deep range.

The G, 4 years ago

Watch out for young newcomer Matthew Palmer: his fine voice is destined for great things.
