Pudsey choir members came together with members from across the region at Victoria Hall in Keighley to record their second album.
The latest Voices of Yorkshire Choirs album will be a collection of Christmas songs that have been beautifully arranged by Nick Ingram the founder of Voices of Yorkshire. Alongside this, the album will feature a children’s choir singing ‘Sparkle and Shine’ from the film Nativity As well as some Christmas readings and poems read by some local children.
Sally Anne Lawrence, of Voices of Yorkshire, said she was delighted to be working again with the very talented producer Andy Thornton, who is originally from Pudsey.
She said: “Andy worked tirelessly on the first album ‘From T’Top’ to help us achieve something really special and we can’t wait to see what he can do with our Christmas album!
“Our choir members have spent the summer months learning Christmas songs and we’re really proud of the hard work they have put in. They have been rehearsing in local parks, people’s gardens and even in the pub! They’ve shown real dedication yet again to this wonderful project!”
The Christmas album is in support of Dementia UK, the choir’s chosen charity for 2023.
The album will be available to download on all major streaming platforms in early November and the choir are planning an album launch party to celebrate.
