Chamber Choir BBC Recording 2018

On Friday 23rd November 2018 Grosvenor’s Music department welcomed William Thompson, from EMS Audio, to the school as its esteemed  Chamber Choir recorded its entry for the prestigious ‘BBC Radio Ulster School Choir of the Year’ 2019 as well as ‘BBC Songs of Praise Young Choir of the Year UK’.

The Choir’s performance pieces were ‘Be Still My Soul’, composed by Jean Sibelius and specially arranged by Jonathan Rea for the GGS Chamber Choir, followed by ‘I’m Gonna Sing ‘Til The Spirit Moves in My Heart’, composed by Moses Hogan.

As always the professionalism of Mr Thompson, himself a former choral scholar of King’s College Cambridge, in recording the CD was much appreciated. Much credit also goes to Head of Music Miss Rosemary Foster who conducted throughout, as well as Mr Jonathan Arnold for his professionalism in accompanying the Choir on the school’s Steinway Grand Piano.
