Here a just a few of the nice comments we have received recently from conductors and choir librarians:-

Dear Andy, Thank you SO much for saving my life so quickly!! The Magnificat scores were with our conductor and orchestra leader within 30 hours of my phone call to you. WOW!! How's that for a brilliant service??. Many thanks.
Maggie Flodman - Formby Choral Society

Your new web site sounds brilliant. Just what we choir librarians are looking for.  I was very impressed by how quickly you processed my request for the Vivaldi Gloria.  I phoned on a Monday afternoon and you told me that I would have the copies by Wednesday.  They arrived just as promised and our choir set to work.
Wendy Twitchett - Shirley Singers

The music hire service provided by Chameleon Arts is extremely efficient. Enquiries are answered promptly and the correct number of copies arrives as scheduled. This is a boon for busy choir managers and choral librarians. The new online service is a great initiative and promises to make the service even better.
Ruth Townsend - National Youth Choir of Scotland

Chameleon offers a friendly, helpful and efficient service to the stressed music librarian.The catalogue is full of essential infomation so it is a great place to start when looking for scores even if you are not quite sure what editions or settings exist.
Lucy Weekes - Fareham Philharmonic Choir

The Bearsden Choir, of which I am librarian, has had occasion to use the facilities of the music hire at Chameleon Arts on many occasions and have found them to be most friendly and helpful.  On the odd occasion when I have been let down by another choir or have had to find a change of repertoire at the last minute, Andy Phillips has gallantly stepped into the breach to help out!  Requests are always answered promptly and the music always arrives on time.
Gail Donald - Bearsden Choir

I have been using Chameleon Music Hire for a long time now and I have always found Andy to be very helpful and knowledgeable. The music sets always arrive when they should and are in perfect order! As a choir librarian I certainly would find life very difficult without the friendly and efficient service that I always get (even when I am having an emergency!)
Elaine Howell - OSJ Voices

Hiring sets of music from Andy Phillips of Chameleon Arts is the easiest part of putting on a choral concert. With an unbelievably extensive library,  Andy provides a service that is helpful, efficient, and prompt. He offers knowledgeable advice and will often help you out in last minute situations. The copies arrive clean, undamaged and clearly numbered - a librarian's dream!  When you order from Andy you know that the right number of copies of the same edition will arrive when you need them. That's the easy bit done...........
David Ogden - City of Bristol Choir & Exultate Singers

Chameleon Arts is my first call for sourcing music to hire.  The range and quantity of pieces available has never let us down, with music supplied on time, often at very short notice!  The copies are always in excellent condition and obviously well looked after.
Rebecca Glancy - New London Singers

The Bridgeman Singers have been using Chameleon Music Hire for many years, about five times a year, for often eclectic cathedral music for deputy choir duties throughout the country.  Always available, always friendly and always efficient, Andy Phillips has always gone the extra mile to cater for our needs, often finding scores we believed impossible to find!  Always delivered on time, always good quality scores and always available for discussion on any points.   We commend the service to any choir librarian, however small or large an enterprise.
John Perry - Bridgeman Singers

Chameleon is always my first port of call for music hire for The London Chorus.  The service is both fast and thorough and I have been especially impressed with their ability to deal with last-minute requests!  Pricing is very reasonable in comparison to some other providers and the labelling of music makes it extremely easy to track loans.  I have no hesitation in recommending Chameleon to other organisations.
Hannah Williams - The
London Chorus

I have used Chameleon Arts Services on several occasions when I needed to hire orchestral parts and vocal scores for choral works. I have been hugely impressed by their reasonable prices and ultra-efficient service. The fact that the organization is master-minded by a friendly and active fellow-musician adds value to the process. Many thanks to Andy Phillips for making this so successful.
Ian Curror -
Royal Hospital Chelsea

Chameleon has a remarkable range of choral music. If a piece is not available from the local library, I generally consult the excellent website Gerontius, and almost invariably end up finding that Chameleon has the music I need and in multiple sets. They have frequently come to my rescue, often at short notice and the music is always delivered with great speed and efficiency.
Teresa Armstrong - Jubilate

I was impressed with the efficiency of your service but most of all how personal you made it feel rather than just talking to an anonymous person at the end of the phone.  You were also very helpful in accommodating the numbers of scores that we required despite not having the numbers in stock.  Basically I felt you went out of your way to provide the best service you could.
Wendy Stevenson - Arnside Choral Society

Sudbury Choral Society have used Chameleon on numerous occasions and always received very prompt and friendly service.  The music hired has invariably been in very good condition and the hire charges never break the bank.  I therefore have no hesitation in recommending Chameleon to all music society librarians.  Put Chameleon at the top of your contact list.  You won't be disappointed.
Garry Tyrrell - Sudbury Choral Society

We have used Chameleon Arts for many years, both for hiring music and for sourcing musicians.  We have always found the service efficient, easy to use, and very friendly. Chameleon is much more than that, though.  I have found Andy a source of enormous knowledge and experience, which he is happy to share with anyone who asks.  More than once, I have rung him for advice which has not necessarily been destined to lead to business for him.  He has always given that advice willingly and cheerfully.  It is clear to anyone who talks to Andy that what he cares about is that people make music.  Chameleon is the means by which he helps to make that possible.  That is why I would recommend Andy and Chameleon to any organisation, large or small, new or old, that shares the same objectives.
Caroline Franks - Royston Choral Society

Fast reliable professional service available to harassed choral librarians even on a Saturday!  Calm, mellifluous, reassuring tones at the end of the phone guaranteed to soothe anxieties about editions, languages and publishers.  Thanks Chameleon for all your help.
Heather Steward - Manchester University Chorus

I have used the Chameleon Music Hire service for about 10 years now and found it to be very fast and informative. It is especially useful if you need music in a hurry and I have no hesitation in recommending the service.
Christopher Duarte - Keswick Hall Choir

We have been hiring choral music from Andy Phillips at Chameleon for many years. The service provided by Andy has always been excellent, the speed of delivery has been stunning with music arriving the day after ordering when it has been required urgently - it would be impossible to provide a better service!
Deborah Davies - Cranmer Company of Singers

We've been fortunate to have been able to use Chameleon Music Hire over the past couple of years and have been impressed by the prompt, friendly and efficient service we've had from Andrew Phillips.
Helen Lane - Keele Bach Choir

Efficient; helpful; supportive - a professional voice at the end of the telephone offering quality service at a competitive rate, with prompt delivery at a convenient time - what more could a busy choral librarian ask?
Margaret Watson, Kendal Choral Society

I contacted Chameleon Music Hire to ask if they could supply music and in email correspondence Andy was always prompt to reply, polite and extremely helpful, for example in giving me information as to where I could source orchestral music that I also required and providing further copies of one of the works I wanted to hire. This helped to relieve some of the new librarian panic and stress. When I placed the order for music it was despatched without delay and the order arrived complete and securely packaged. I will certainly consider using Chameleon for any music hire in the future.
Kirsti Mcdougall - Aberdeen Bach Choir

As a new librarian with no experience of hiring music I have been very pleased with the service you have provided and you have also given advice / guidance if I was unsure which edition I would need to hire etc.  The music has always been received on time and in excellent condition. Very efficient & helpful service - comment from me & the previous librarian.
Lynn King - Dyfed Choir

I've hired choral music from Chameleon on behalf of several choirs, often at short notice, and I've always been delighted with the prompt and helpful service I've received from Andrew.  I can thoroughly recommend Chameleon's music hire service to all choir directors and librarians.
Malcolm Macleod - Ledbury Choral Society / Elgar Chorale of Worcester

I have always found Chameleon music hire to be really efficient -  a prompt and completely reliable service.
Alison Cameron - Farrant Singers

The music has just arrived.   Thanks for sending so promptly.  I am amazed at the speed with which you have managed to get it to this remote corner of the British Isles.  
Graham Buchanan-Dunlop - Broughton Choral Society

I have always found your responses to my enquiries prompt and helpful with information about editions and types of scores you have available.  When I request copies they are ready for despatch without delay.  Very importantly the condition of the copies is good to excellent.  Charges are competitive.
Pamela Darker - Waverley Singers

The on-line service is simply one of the easiest, most user-friendly music hire service around. It's a fairly comprehensive list and I always feel a sense of relief when I come across a piece in the concert list which I know is available through Chameleon - as I know everything will be handled swiftly, fairly, and in the most considerate way.
Beccy Read - Southern Voices

Andrew Phillips' Chameleon Music Hire is by far the most efficient, friendly and helpful music hire company that I have come across since becoming the librarian of New Cambridge Singers 5 years ago. Chameleon has a wonderfully wide range of music for hire, Andy is able to give expert advice about editions and where he doesn't have the music himself he has been able to guide me to other more erudite sources. Copies ordered in advance arrive in good time and in good condition and Andy keeps track of returns but is always polite in the face of a librarian's dread - the unreturned copy. In addition he is unfailingly patient and Chameleon has frequently sent music out to me at extraordinarily short notice.  In summary a choir librarian's dream!
Helen Skaer - New Cambridge Singers

Contacting Chameleon Music Hire is never a chore...always a pleasure!!  Their service is fast, efficient, reliable and competitively priced. They are fully informed on choir and orchestral requirements. No question is too trivial to answer. Furthermore their hired music is always in good condition.
Janet Todd -  The Bury St Edmunds Bach Society

The efficiency and reliability of Andy Phillips and Chameleon Music Hire are second-to-none, and they have saved the day for several last-minute programme changes or late surges in numbers of singers.
Katy McAdam - Pegasus

I have used Chameleon Music Hire on several occasions over the past three years and I have always received a prompt, helpful service. Hiring is competitively priced and efficient and I would happily recommend it to anyone looking to hire scores. 
Edmund Connolly - Director of Music, Rosslyn Hill Chapel, Hampstead.
