Joseph’s Blog: Remembrance Filming

We recently reconvened in our beloved Cambridge to film a commemorative piece for the upcoming Armistice Centenary. It was wonderful to make music with the choir again after a gap of some 3 months since August’s festivities in Sussex, and particularly wonderful to sing in the chapel of Downing College, a building that completely passed me by during my undergraduate years but which proved to be the ideal venue for us! A reduced team of 8 singers came together and recorded not just the piece for Remembrance (which will be released very soon), but also two pieces from the festival repertoire list – Mendelssohn’s Denn er hat seinen Engeln and Rachmaninov’s Bogoroditse Dyevo.

Susie and I also met earlier in the week to plan ahead for exciting things to come, not least of which is next year’s Boxgrove Choral Festival. I can’t wait to share more details with you all!
