Hark The Herald - RPO Concert Viewing Link Released

10th December

The RPO starts to broadcast their Christmas Concert (in which we’re singing Hark The Herald) from the 10th December. They’ll send all singers a link to view our segment. This is a private video with a viewing limit so that those involved in the project can see their hard work, whilst ensuring that it doesn’t get shared widely, so please don’t share this on social media.

We are also making our own version of Hark The Herald which will be released publicly on Christmas Eve!

In the RPO’s version of Hark The Herald the second verse will be sung by VOCES8. In our public release on Christmas Eve, the Stay At Home Choir will be singing all three verses.

If you’ve bought a ticket for the RPO Christmas Concert you will be able to view the whole concert from this date for the full twelve days.

If you haven’t bought a ticket for the RPO Christmas Concert you can still view Hark The Herald using the Members Only Viewing Link. Check your e-mails for the viewing link.

If you can’t find the e-mail, drop us a line at [email protected].

Caledonia - 6th February

We had an enormous number of submissions for Caledonia, and the choir splits into EIGHT parts, so it’s taking a while to put together and we’re anticipating a release on 6th February 2021.

Our solo competition winners will be announced in the run-up to the premiere, and rest assured we will be in touch as soon as we have news about when we’ll be releasing it to the world!
