Senior Choir star on BBC Spotlight

January 11th, 2010 | Posted by Rebecca Walker in Music

Many of you will no doubt have seen the Senior Chamber Choir perform on BBC Spotlight in the days leading up to Christmas.   You may even have seen us on The Big Screen in Plymouth during late night shopping prior to Christmas!   We had been invited  to record some of the music we had been preparing for our Carol Service and on the day before the end of term, we went to the church of St Peter and the Holy Apostles in Plymouth to take part in the recording session. What an amazing church – and what an acoustic!    We had the most fantastic time exploiting this acoustic to our advantage and wallowing in the beautiful sound reverberating around the church.    Following run-throughs for sound and camera positions, we recorded a number of carols –  The Holly and the Ivy, Away in a manger, Fanfare and A Coventry Carol.   We also recorded Let there be peace on earth with the Plymouth Area Police Choir with whom we have sung on many occasions – our next being at Central Methodist Church, Launceston on Friday, 5th March. Without a doubt, this was a fantastic experience for the girls and one which they will remember for many years to come:  the excitement of the cameras and the experience of recording, the friendliness of all the BBC staff and the amazing acoustic all made a wonderful and memorable impression upon all of us.
