"On your most memorable day I would recommend no other person than Carys. She was a professional at all times, more importantly conducted and delivered a heartfelt skilled performance. Her music left everyone at the church in awe. She is a must have on your wedding day!! Xxx "

"Carys played in the church at my wedding , she played for the guests as they arrived and through the ceremony. The sound of her music was truly outstanding, it made the ceremony even more special for me and my husband. I had so many of my guests ask about Carys and say how beautifully she played. It doesn't matter how many times I say how beautiful her music is and how talented she is as no words do either of them justice! Truly remarkable! Thank you Carys!"

"We used Carys for our Wedding day back in August 2008 and were over the moon with the service we received. We met up with her prior to the Wedding where she played us a few samples of songs and we went through songs we liked etc. She got copies of music pieces she didn't have especially for us and nothing was too much trouble for her. It was a pleasure every step of the way. She is a lovely genuine lady and very professional. She made us feel at ease and communicated so well with us. We can honestly say that Carys and her beautiful Harp playing really made our Wedding breakfast and our Wedding would not have been the same without her. Everyone commented how wonderful she was on the wedding day. She was really punctual and even when we weren't she politely carried on playing longer than she should have when things ran over late! She is truly an amazing and talented lady. We have recommended her to all our friends and family and booking Carys for your Wedding day is an absolute must! Thanks for everything"

"I was invited to host a public performance by a group of young musicians. It was a delight to see a capacity audience who heard a performance that totally justified their eager anticipation. The music was breathtaking and so captivating you could have heard the proverbial pin drop. Carys Chaney and her sister, Freya, were remarkably professional in handling some sensitive music on harp and flute respectively. Their four part vocal group, Caelestis, sung some popular classics and more formal pieces with equal skill and superb clarity, sometimes unaccompanied."

"These are talented young people already with great capabilities, poise and confidence - the future looks extremely bright for them."

"The open art studio that I have been running for several years at my gallery space in Happisburgh has built to become a highly successful event. It is held in my own gallery space at Barron Lodge Farm in some old converted agricultural buildings and has grown to feature 10 or more local artists every year including, of course, my own work. Yet, despite attracting preview attendances of around 1000, I felt something was missing. The daughter of a friend of ours, Carys Chaney, is very proficient on both harp and flute and she offered to bring her talents and the vocal group she leads, Caelestis, to provide some background music to the preview."

"This was a stunning success and immensely popular. Indeed at times it became more than background music as my friends and colleagues were mesmerised by the musicianship of these charming young people and their close harmony singing. I can highly recommend them."

"Quartet were Just Heavenly. Never were there such melodic sisters as the two sets who stood up and sang in sweet harmony during the launch of the first Happing Festival. The four girls aged from 15 to 18, gave an impromptu, a-cappella performance of Bridge Over Troubled Water and Panis Angelicus in St Mary’s Church, Stalham, illustrating Jim Stebbings’ comments about the wealth of talent in the area. Freya and Carys Chaney and Phillipa and Rachael Levy were due to perform at a church concert in their home village of Happisburgh the next day to help raise money for breast cancer and the Coastal Concern Action Group. The quartet call themselves Caelestis, which Latin scholars will know translates as ‘heavenly’- and so they were."
