"..just wanted to send you a massive thanks to you both, the ceremony was just the way we wanted it.. The music was perfect and Nina, that was a fantastic rendition of Songbird which was warmly commented on by our guests.. I genuinely loved the exit music 'Life with you'."

"Arcantora were simply outstanding at our daughter’s wedding in Balfron and Cameron House, Loch Lomond - giving much more that simple background or organ music support. It’s rare to have such quality of string instrument and singing, live, in support, transforming the atmosphere during the otherwise quiet breaks, such as signing of the register, and leading of hymns –which they did, marvellously."

Reviews for Nina Kopparhed singing Exsultate, Jubilate in Victoria Halls, Dunblane on November 27th, 2011
"I normally don't like to single anything, or anyone, out but norms have to be set aside on occasion. I really thought the Exsultate Jubilate was in every way exceptional, as fine a performance as I have heard in many a day, the soloist positively radiating charm and joy in the music such as to transfix everyone in the hall. Absolutely first class."
