When BCGC met Gareth Malone!

About a month ago our director Marie received a call out of the blue from, the UK’s most famous choir director, Gareth Malone’s team wondering about the possibility of recording a few tracks with BCGC. It didn’t take us long to say yes and the date was set!

On September 7th rehearsal space at the Ulster Temple was decorated in Christmas style as BCGC eagerly awaited the arrival of Gareth Malone. We recorded two songs with Gareth for his “The Best British Christmas” which will feature choirs from across the UK, bell ringers, brass bands and contributions from stars such as Ricky Wilson of the Kaiser Chiefs, Fyfe Dangerfield,  Guillemots, and Welsh harpist Catrin Finch.
