"The Three Boys - Katherine Williamson, Alison Robertson and Katie Heinbach, blending nicely - were attentive voices of conscience." (Written by Martin Dreyer - OPERA MAGAZINE) (2014)

“The ‘Boys’ would not descend in aeroplanes or balloons, not least because they were in fact three splendidly cast girls, wonderfully alive and rather brilliantly marshalled, whose harmonic sense and tuning rivalled the three women.” Seen and Heard International (2014)

“Katherine Williamson sang with passion and assurance. Her voice has a lovely sound and her clarity of diction and her colouring of both light and dark parts of the music were very effective” Wiltshire Times
