Festive carols sung in new arrangements by a new University-inspired choral group

Alumnus Fraser Wilson (BMus Music, 2008) has just finished studying for a Masters in Music Management. Over the course of the past year he has formed a new choir, Albion. The members are all past or present students of the University of Sheffield; Fraser is the Musical Director and composes and arranges its repertoire. In May, students from the MA in Music Management course led by Dr David Patmore masterminded the choir’s first full concert, helping to raise hundreds of pounds for the Children’s Hospital Charity.
Group of people singing

The choir have recently recorded and released a short album of Christmas music entitled ‘Salutation’. In this, the group benefited greatly from its close links to the University of Sheffield: the record was produced by Stewart Campbell (University Concerts Co-ordinator; B.Mus Music, 2006) and engineered by Nick Cox (B.Mus Music, 2006) assisted by Mike Hukins (B.Mus Music, 2012), and was made using some of the top-end equipment owned by the Department of Music.

The album is available both on CD and as a digital download; details of how to obtain both are available on the website at: www.albionchoir.org.uk
