On 27th January 2021 St Wulfram's Church Choir released their recording of a new hymn to commemorate Holocaust Memorial Day, written by Multitude of Voyces team member Miriam Endersby, and composed by Kristina Arakelyan. This hymn marked the beginning of a new partnership project, supported by a generous private donor and by the Pratt Green Trust, to commission and publish a set of hymns on social-justice issues on themes of our times. Most of the hymns will be written and composed by individuals who represent historically underrepresented or marginalised communities within the world of choral music. See our Hymn Project webpage for further details.
We are very much looking forward to sharing recordings of the complete works of Volume 1, performed by the Choir of Selwyn College, Cambridge, directed by Sarah MacDonald. These recordings were made in summer 2021 on the Regent record label. The CD will be available to purchase soon and we will update our News page accordingly. We are very grateful to Sarah and to the choir and organists of Selwyn College, and to their Dean of Chapel, Revd Canon Hugh Shilson-Thomas, for their continuing support of our work.
We are thrilled that three wonderful choirs, The Gesualdo Six (directed by Owain Park), Siglo de Oro (directed by Patrick Allies) and Aurora Nova (directed by Patrick Craig), have recorded more than 30 works from across Volumes 2 and 3 of our anthology project. The recordings can be heard on SoundCloud and links to the videos of the recordings can be found on our Anthology pages on this website.
In early 2022 Cambridge Chorale, directed by Owain Park, will record further works from Volume 3 and we are hugely grateful to Owain and to Cambridge Chorale and to a private sponsor, for making these recordings possible.
On Tuesday May 11th at 2pm BBC Singers (directed by Owain Park) performed a concert on BBC Radio 3 of 12 a cappella works selected from all three volumes of our Anthology series.
