On the Saturday night, the Selwyn choir were joined by the Ely Cathedral Girls' Choir. This recording session consisted of The Chester Service (Mass setting written for the Chester Cathedral Nave Choir), Benedictus (commissioned for the Selwyn Choir for this recording) and the Te Deum (commissioned for the St. Asaph Choral Society). It was actually the first time that I had heard the Chester Service or the Benedictus, and very pleased to say that the end result was extremely satisfying.
With demanding writing both for the organists and singers, the end result should be extremely exciting - very much looking forward to the release next year. The final recording session will take place next month with the Ely Cathedral Girls' Choir recording three pieces - a Missa Brevis, The Bangor Service (evening canticles) and "A Royal Blessing".
