We’re absolutely delighted to announce that our new album, ‘Remember’, is now available to pre-order on Amazon, due to be released on Friday 29th June 2018!
2018 marks the centenary of the end of World War I. Fierce heroism from the troops at the Front was matched by the country’s women who raised children alone, nursed, and worked tirelessly despite the loss of husbands, sons, fathers, brothers and friends.
69 of our choirs from across the UK and abroad have joined together to acknowledge this poignant occasion through a special commemorative project, coming together with musicians from across the three services to create an album like no other, telling the story of ‘then’ (1918) and ‘now’ (2018).
And, to get you in the mood, we’re delighted to be able to share with you the very first track, ‘The Poppy Red’!
An original composition by the award-winning composer Owain Park, and inspired by the 1918 poem ‘We Shall Keep The Faith’, the song sees 1105 voices join with The Band of the Household Cavalry. Conducted by Hilary Davan Wetton, and produced by Sean Hargreaves and John Haywood, the song is a perfect introduction to ‘Remember’ and its themes of commemoration, remembrance, patriotism and military life.
We really hope you enjoy it and we can’t wait for the world to hear more of ‘Remember’! Don’t forget to pre-order your album now!
