Capturing Christmas with the All Souls Orchestra has to be done within the walls of All Souls Church, Langham Place.
After all that is the birthplace of All Souls Orchestra! When we were given the possibility of recording a Christmas Album there, Noel jumped at the chance.
All Souls Church, in the very heart of London’s West End, has a fine acoustic for music performance and recording. So there in the heat of summer 2018, the Orchestra recorded an album of instrumental music associated with Christmas.
Including Hark the herald-angels, Silent Night, God rest you merry gentlemen,
O come all ye faithful, appearing several times but always in different guises. To keep alive new expressions of worship, the orchestral players have long established a keen association with living, active, composers and arrangers. This includes Stuart Townend’s modern classic, From the squalor of a borrowed stable (Immanuel).
Also included are It came upon a midnight clear, and Once in royal David’s city, arranged by conductor Noel Tredinnick. If you enjoy these examples of All Souls Music’s publishing initiative making the notation of these flamboyant and adventurous versions available to download, go to Sheet Music – Christmas.
This album is instrumental – perfect for seasonal reflection, or sing-a-long to your favourite carols! We hope it will be a blessing to you this Christmas. Why not purchase a copy for a friend. So help more people to experience the energy and joy of the Orchestra, at Christmas! Check out our behind the scenes video here
