The Wooburn Singers
- New CD released
Wooburn Singers are delighted to announce the release of a new compilation CD, A Vision of Light. In June 2013 as part of our farewell to our Music Director Greg Beardsell the choir gave the premiere of a new work by Gabriel Jackson, Three prayers, with a vision of light. The work was commissioned by the choir to mark Greg’s 8 years with us, and the CD includes the first performance. Also included is a selection of a cappella pieces recorded at our concerts under Greg’s direction in the last two years. For more details, see the Recordings page.
Also still available are two earlier compilations, Calm Me, O Lord: Wooburn Singers in Concert and Wooburn Singers at Christmas.
Our CDs are £5 each. We can’t currently accept on-line payment for CDs (watch this space), but copies can be ordered from choir members, or via the Contact form (£2.00 per order for postage and packing).
- Meet the Woobies!
The September 2013 edition of Buckinghamshire Life magazine has a front-page feature entitled Meet the Woobies – one big tuneful family, written by choir member Jenny Atkinson.
