March 28th, 2007 - St. Cuthberts CD date


BYC Primary School St Cuthbert and the First Martyrs recently undertook an all day CD recording, capturing not only the sound of the school choir, but of each class in the school.

 

Recorded in the fine acoustic of the school hall, all the long hours of careful practice for the singers paid off with great concentration shown by all. The music was directed jointly by Catharine Bolland, Music Co-ordinator at St. Cuthbert and the First Martyrs, and Christopher Johns, Assistant Director of the Bradford Youth Choir.

 


A wide range of repertoire was recorded ranging from folk songs, Latin Motets (Ave Maria - Cousins) through to African songs (Siyahamba) and contemporary Catholic classics such as 'Christ be our light' (Farrell) and 'Here I am, Lord. (Schutte.) Watch this space for CD release date!
