Recorded live in front of a large and appreciative audience in the historic St Magnus Cathedral, Kirkwall in Orkney.
The choir were delighted to be able to make the long journey to Orkney and receive permission to both perform and record in this historic cathedral. The choir of 70 singers had the opportunity to sing with the magnificent Organ and sounded uplifting in the special acoustic of St Magnus. This recording is the latest in a new series of recordings that continue to mark the now 118 years of choral excellence – 68 years of the Glasgow Phoenix Choir and 50 years of its predecessor The Glasgow Orpheus Choir.
The recording was made possible thanks to the generous support of Co-Op Funeralcare and The Vivian Angus Bequest.
