The Renaissance Choir


Last Saturday, The Renaissance Choir spent the day in Visconti Studio recording material for a new CD.

MD Peter Gambie directed a recording of Ian Schofield’s Stream of Life, commissioned by the choir in 2016, as well as Renaissance polyphony by Orlando Lassus and William Byrd. We also recorded Francis Poulenc’s Gloria accompanied by the choir’s favourite pianist, the supremely talented Karen Kingsley.

The day went very smoothly thanks in no small part to engineer Rob Plummer who helped ensure that the choir sounded their best. It was a particularly special occasion as Visconti Studio Director, Isabella van Elferen, is also a choir member. The choir remained in good voice and good spirits throughout the long recording session and  Susan Yarnall excelled herself as soprano soloist.

The new CD is expected to be released in autumn 2018.
