Testimonials

Dear Dan,

‘I make contact to thank you for your support in agreeing to perform at the ‘Harbour Sounds’ concert which was held in St. Mary’s Church in Passage West last Saturday evening. As you will be aware, the concert was a great success and the audience on the night filled the church. They greatly enjoyed the varied programme of music and as a result, after minor expenses were deducted, approximately €3,500 was raised for our organ replacement project.

Thank you for entering into the spirit of the evening so readily and for giving of your time and musical talent for this event. I know the parish and Church of Ireland community in Passage West greatly value your support.’

Yours sincerely,

Dan,
‘First of all thank we can’t thank you so much for everything and making our wedding ceremony so special.  Your singing was absolutely beautiful and all our guests were commenting on how good it was.  We were a bit lost as to the song choices to make at first so again thank you for taking the time to meet with us prior to the wedding and going through all our choices.  We can’t wait to watch our wedding video back and listen to it all again.  Hopefully we’ll cross paths again in some form or another.’
Kindest regards,

‘I just want to say a massive Thank You on behalf of myself and Niall for your singing at our recent Wedding. The Ceremony was made much more memorable because of you and the wonderful music you provided with Mary your accompanist. We have received so many compliments regarding your singing and everyone loved it. I know emotions were running high for the opening song anyway! You sang all the hymns so beautifully and we were so happy that you sang the Responsorial Psalm off the altar. We were lucky to get my mother to leave the church at all as she would have stayed there listening to you all day! We are so thankful that you were able to provide the music for our Wedding Day and for making the Ceremony so special and personal.’

Dan Twomey was amazing. We booked him from the UK without hearing him in person and he was very helpful. I had a few ideas and song choices that he was excellent at fitting in throughout the mass. he is a professional and you know he wants to do a good job. His voice is amazing and he sounded fantastic in the north cathedral Cork. I would highly recommend him for your wedding – you would struggle to get better.

Hi Dan,
‘I just wanted to say a huge thanks to both you and Derek for singing and playing at our wedding. We were absolutely thrilled by the high standard you provided and several people asked about the wonderful signing in the Church! We really thought the personal touch you made by signing at the altar in between the two readers was fantastic. One of our guests Sinead told me afterwards that she has met you before and worked with your brother. She is getting married in 2016, so we might see you again!
Again, thanks so much for everything, we definitely made a great choice by choosing you to be part of our special day’.

‘Just a quick email to say thank you so so so much for last weekend. You were outstanding in the church, only caught the end of you at the hotel unfortunately. Thankfully I have it all on video. 

Our guests were raving that if they went home after the church it still would’ve been a fabulous day because of your singing. They were delighted to be surprised by you being in the Skelligs too so they could enjoy you even more.

When you started singing O Sole Mio, I got distracted from singing the register!! Fabulous!

A job excellently done Dan, you’re extremely talented.’

‘I love music and I adore music in a church. I decided I would like to have a tenor to sing the day of my wedding. I have no regrets just beautiful memories that I will never forget. Dan Twomey the tenor soloist sang at my wedding. From the first conversation I had with him he was professional and personable. He helped me to choose the songs that suited me for our wedding.  He sang the songs over the phone as I made my decisions

He sang Nella Fantasia as I walked up the isle and this was amazing. Dan continued to sing beautifully all through the mass and Peter and I thoroughly enjoyed every song he sang. All of my guests commented on how excellent he was. He totally made the mass for Peter and I. We can only thank Dan but I would also recommend any bride and groom to have Dan sing at their special day.’

Dan,

‘My husband and I wanted to thank you for singing at our wedding on the 20th April 2012.  We had found that many weddings we went to had female singers, and while they were nice we knew we wanted something a bit different for our day.   So when it came time to looking for church musicians we found it so refreshing to find not only a tenor, but a singer of your calibre that would be available to sing on our special day. We are still receiving compliments on how memorable our ceremony was and how truly amazing your singing was.  You were so great to work with, and made the process of organizing the ceremony so effortless and very enjoyable.  From your advice on song selections to your collaboration with us as well as with our violinist you were truly wonderful to work with.  We can’t recommend you highly enough!! Thanks again for making our wedding ceremony such a special one!’
