Over the last
three days the girls have been working hard recording
their next CD - OMNIS GLORIA – which will be launched on
Thursday 23 June after the 6:00pm Solemn Choral Mass for
the Solemnity of Corpus Christi.
The girls travelled over to Oxford to record the disc in
the stunning chapel at Exeter College, Oxford, where there
is an authentic French organ. This disc is intended as a
follow-on to the hugely successful disc of 2004, En Prière,
and again features music by French composers for
upper-voices and organ, include many choral rarities by
composers such as Chaminade, Charpentier, Duruflé, Grovlez,
Lalouette, Nivers and de Séverac.
We were lucky enough that Stephen Meakins, a former Organ
Scholar who has just finished his studies at The Royal
College of Music was able to accompany us, and the
recording engineers and producers were Lance Andrews and
Richard Tanner, Director of Music at All Saints from 1993
to 1998, when he left to take up the position as Organist
and Director of Music at Blackburn Cathedral, and now
Director of Music at the Royal Naval College in Greenwich.
