" BAA had even laid on an operatic tenor, Laurence, to sing them in. Tenor Laurence is a veteran of such sporting occasions, but even he was overawed by it all today. "This is probably the best gig I've ever sung at," he said. It was just after 5am when he started going through is paces - Swing Low, Sweet Chariot, naturally, including the verses the fans did not know, and a clutch of other crowdpleasers including I Vow To Thee My Country and Jerusalem. But it was not long before he was drowned out by the cheers of the fans as one by one the team emerged from customs. "
Valentine Low and Danielle Gusmaroli, London Evening Standard
" Tenor Laurence hits all the right notes – in every sense of the word, winning the entire audience over with a powerful set of operatic and middle of the road material. One to watch. "
