In October the Cross Border Youth Choir met up (online) to learn some new Christmas music, which has become a tradition of ours. The choirs were Belfast Philharmonic Youth and Chamber choirs, and Dublin Youth and Chamber Choirs, with DYC Training Choir taking part for the first time. The singers learned the music in the afternoon and in the evening went away to record themselves individually so that Brian Murphy could edit it all together for us. 

The recording we created from that day was one of five winning entries in Making Music's Christmas Carol competition, which meant we were played on Classic FM on Thursday 17th December! We're so proud of the work our young singers put in every time we meet, whether that's online or in person.

You can hear the piece on catch-up until Wednesday 23rd December (we're on just after 52 minutes)
