Hi Annie

My thanks are to you. Great, great session. Choir sang down complicated arrangement first time, as if they'd rehearsed for a week. Made my job very easy!

Soon, again, I hope. Greatest appreciation.

Hi Annie,

I wanted to take the opportunity to say how thrilled I was with the sessions.

We finished comping them now, and the reaction to the BG vox has been absolutely brilliant, top to bottom.

Many, many thanks for such phenomenal work, and I look forward to doing it together again soon!

Re Sessions for a film about Lionel Bart

test
Hi Annie,

Thank you for a wonderful session last Thursday, sounded absolutely fab and such a pleasure to do.

We're putting some dialogue on tomorrow and playing it to the director then assemble and mix so we'll be able to send you a copy.

We may have some more demo's to do but the real thing should happen Oct/Nov time, I'll keep in touch.

Lots of love

Re 'Lady Bess' musical recording

test
Hi Annie,

The last fortnight has been the usual Taoist trove of travel, trauma and travail, but, time spent with friends, talking, eating and experiencing great concerts and wonderful theatre notwithstanding, nothing quite beats the satisfactorial thrill of four days in a recording studio with unassumingly modest, mercurially quick and deliciously devilish professionals. Unfortunately, I couldn't find any like that! So I had to put up with David Combes, John Addison, Patrick Smyth, Simon Green, Annie Skates, Katie Birtill, Jenna Lee-James, Emma Kershaw, Janet Mooney and James Spilling instead. But my heartfelt thanks anyway. You'll do. Xxx

Dear Friends,

Thank you all so much for making our time together over the past few days such fun. Orchestrating a Gala Event at the Royal Albert Hall is bit like doing one’s own root-canal work. Without the drugs…

But you were all so patient and supportive and the end result was absolutely tip-top. Everyone has commented on how well the evening went and what an entertaining concert it was. Jeremy called it the highlight of his life…

I hope we made a great deal of money for UNICEF – I’m sure the Royal Albert Hall will let us know the final figure in due course.

In the meantime, thank you for your time, talent and, above all, love.

I hope you have a very happy Christmas and I greatly look forward to seeing you in the New Year.

Re Friday Night is Mercer Night - BBC Radio 2


Hi Anne,

I wonder if you can help me. I luckily managed to catch the Capital Voices rendition of "On The Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe" on Radio2 last Friday - I have to say I was absolutely blown away by it. I am not usually a big fan of that genre of music byt thanks to you guys I am a true convert. I wanted to write and say thank you for opening my eyes (or perhaps my ears & mind!) and also to ask where I could get hold of the recording - can it be purchased?

Once again - many thanks - I was humming and singing the song to myself all weekend with a smile on my face!

Re 'Thank You For The Music', Hyde Park


Hi Annie and all of you,

Just wanted to write and say 'thank you' to all of you properly for the concert on Sunday. As always, you did a fantastic job.

I've said it to you before, but it's worth repeating. On a concert like this, when there are so many elements and artists, it is absolutely wonderful for me to be able to know that you guys are there - and on it. Your musicianship, discipline and attitude mean a great deal to me. You give these events immediate class and authority and me personally huge confidence. I know I can rely on you to justdoit - brilliantly, quickly and without drama. It also makes a massive difference to incoming artists when they hear you. The immediate impact on them is 'Ah! This is a production that knows what it's doing', and of course, it usually means they realise they can't muck about either!

The reaction to the concert has been extraordinary. We have had hundreds of e-mails of appreciation with people telling us about their experiences. Among them, people who were so moved by it that they wept tears of joy; people who felt they'd sung and danced with 36,000 friends; people who've told me that the London Underground was ringing with the sound of ABBA songs as folk made their way home; tales of round trip journeys of 400 miles or more to see it with tired children sleeping in the back on the way home; people remembering when they'd first seen ABBA and getting all misty eyed about lifting their children on to their shoulders and hearing them start singing along. Endless accounts of celebrations and special occassions marked with a pair of tickets to see the show; and more uses of the words 'Amazing' and 'Fantastic' than I've ever seen. In short, the show made 36,000 people in the park and hundreds of thousands listening at home very, very happy and in the end that's what its all about really - isn't it?

So thank you Annie - and thank you Capital Voices. I'm very lucky and proud to be working with you.

Much love.

A HUGE THANK YOU FOR TODAY.

It was an absolute pleasure to work with you all, and, hey, how often do you get to work with a choir that big and get to do whatever you like with them?

You made it all seem incredibly easy, (even with lights going out!??) and having had a sleepless night the day before wondering if it was even going to be possible I knew within a few seconds of starting that I was in very very safe, secure and rather inspired hands. So thank you indeed.

I really hope I get to see you and work with you again, and if anyone needs insane vocals arrangements doing, please ask. I'd love to do more.

Have a great week, and thank you thank you. You made my day...and all at the National Theatre were THRILLED!!!!!

You and all your team were not only excellent musically, but such lovely people and made a very long day enormously enjoyable. It is no surprise to me that you are as busy and as successful as you are. I know that some of the material was quite challenging, but did not cause you or your team any problems, which was most impressive.

Re Mike Doyle TV special - HTV Wales

Dear Annie,

Thanks for your wonderful contribution to the success of our Mike Doyle show. You and your teams make such a difference. It's not just the music and the movement and the look, it's that sense of all-round professionalism. It's one of the joys of the edit suite: whenever we look to see what you're all up to when you're in the background of shots, without fail you're always taking part - listening, laughing, poised, involved. Thanks.

You'll be interested and amused to know that its transmission on March 1st was delayed by 90 minutes because of ITV's coverage of the Manchester Utd. game. As a consequence when Mike was saying "Enjoy what's left of St. David's Day," it was in fact already March 2nd (about 20 past midnight). But it still got a good audience, and HTV were so pleased with it that they repeated it three nights later (a good Saturday evening slot) when it got a fantastic audience and lots of great reaction. So it's a hit twice over, and we're mindful of the debt of gratitude we owe to you, Kate and Mick for helping to make it so.

Thanks and warm good wishes
Yours sincerely,
Chris Stuart,
Producer Presentable Productions

Re British Motor Transport Awards - Royal Albert Hall

Dear Anne

Now that the dust has settled and I have access to my computer, I wanted to write to thank you for all your help in putting the show together for the Motor Transport Awards at the Royal Albert Hall last week.

The client is over the moon and audience response so far is that it was probably the best event they have staged. This is, in great part, due to your hard work in putting together a gorgeous group of girls (+ Mick!) who were fantastic performers. Your assistance with music, dance and costumes was invaluable and greatly appreciated by someone not in the industry (me!)

Please pass on all our thanks and best wishes to the girls, and Mick, and I am sure we will be in touch in the very near future to discuss future events.

Once again, many thanks for all your help.
Best wishes,
AMANDA GAME

Re Symphonic 70's Summer Concert tour


Dear Anne

I just wanted to write to you, as I didn't manage to speak to you on Sunday night, to thank you, Emma, Dean and Michael for the wonderful performances you have given us this Summer. The audience reaction to the Symphonic 70s concerts has confirmed the success of the programme - a direct result of all your hard work and exuberance under what I know have been very difficult circumstances.

Please will you pass on my personal thanks and very best wishes to Emma, Dean and Michael, and I hope that we may work with you again in the future.

With very best wishes
Clare Scott
Orchestra Manager, Performing Arts Management
