All is Still
A new carol for Canterbury Cathedral Girls’ Choir
My second collaboration with composer Rebecca Dale, following ‘Winter’ for Voces 8 was a new carol for Canterbury Cathedral Girls’ Choir Christmas album. I discovered it’s actually very hard to write an original carol that isn’t full of snow/glow holly/jolly dove/love, and so my respect for Christina Rosetti’s lean, spare, miraculous ‘In the Bleak Midwinter’ lyric has increased tenfold since attempting it myself.
We went down the angels route in the end – but with the chance to have soaring angelic voices and some great golden trumpets in Rebecca’s orchestration, it would have been rude not to…
The album was featured as ‘Album of the Week’ on Classic FM in December 2017.
The album is available on Amazon at www.amazon.com/Christmas-Canterbury-Cathedral-Girls-Choir/dp/B0768827S7 as wells as online with I-Tunes, Spotify etc.
