The Zoom Carol

The Zoom Carol

Wednesday 6th January 2021

How four socially distanced choirs managed to create one unique performance!

Members of the Bach Choir came together ‘virtually’ over Christmas, with colleagues from the Wellingborough Singers, the Northampton Bach Choir and the Huntingdon Philharmonic, to create the wonderfully topical Zoom Carol. With music arranged by Malcom Sargent, and words by Gesa Beales, chairman of the Wellingborough Singers, the carol celebrates the joys and sorrows of a Christmas like no other we have ever known.

Each contributor to this video recorded themselves individually, then the results were edited together by a professional recording engineer. The end product is an amazingly seamless performance, which you can watch and listen to here:

A big ‘thank you’ to Lee Dunleavy, our Director of Music, for master-minding, rehearsing and co-ordinating this joint effort, to Jessica Kinney for three days of hard work on the editing, and to Gesa Beales for her very apposite lyrics.

Happy New Year, everyone, and keep singing!
