A couple of months before Christmas, I was asked to be a part of the Sing! Project at Sheffield Cathedral.

This project involved a choir of over 150 children from several different schools, who were brought together by Nick Cox, performing arrangements of traditional Christmas Carols by Richard Longman.

I was asked to record the choir, in the cathedral. For this, I used a pair of AKG C414’s in an XY configuration to capture the majority of the sound, and a spaced pair of AKG C214’s as outriggers.

Nick then edited and roughly mixed the recordings, which he sent back to me for a final mix and master.

The finished CD ‘Sweet Bells‘ is available online

There was also a film crew there, and they produced a music video for ‘I Saw Three Ships’.
