~ Abbey Choir CD Recording ~

 Abbey Choir CD Recording In February the Choir completed a recording of Christmas music with Herald to help support the work of Aid to the Church in Need.  The recording involved a week of hard-work late at night in the Abbey Church.  While at times frustrated by the noise of aircraft flying over from Heathrow, the project was very successful and was a great learning experience for the Choir.  We are very much indebted to the work of Herald and our producer Matthew Martin, Assistant Master of Music at Westminster Cathedral.  This was the first time the Choir had recorded with Herald since its successful Bruckner CD in 1997 and it is hoped this recent recording will be as successful.The CD will include some favourites including Away in a Manger and the Sans Day Carol but also some less well known music by Francisco Guerrero and an adaptation of the Marian antiphon Christe Redemptor omnium. The expected release date of the CD is October 2010.
