This release is an eclectic mix of exciting and distinctive new Christmas music for upper voices by three prominent and admired composers of choral music. The largest work is the first recording of David Bednall's major cycle of eight carols: 'Make We Merry' for upper voices, brass, percussion, and organ, which was commissioned for Benenden Chapel Choir, and first performed by them in 2018. Also featured is the first recording of Bob Chilcott's cycle 'The Midnight of Your Birth', and the first commercial recording of the complete upper-voice version of 'Snow Angel' by Canadian composer, Sarah Quartel. The highly polished performances of Benenden Chapel Choir will both entertain and inspire upper voice ensembles to perform these works for years to come.
