Saying it loud and clear
Arts Team Lead, Tamsin Dives, reflects on the creation of 'The Living Years': hopefully topping the chart this Christmas!
“St Christopher’s Community Choir first joined The London Hospices Choir back in September when we all met at Kingston Parish Church to rehearse the song ‘The Living Years’. We spent a few hours learning the notes under the guidance of Jim Hawkins, the arranger.
A few weeks later we all met at Abbey road studio to record the track. This happened in the studio where the Beatles made many of their albums. I don’t think any of us could have imagined that one day we’d be there making our own recording .Surrounded by images of some of the greatest musicians of our generation ,whose music has shaped and formed us and played a huge role in all our lives ,was completely inspiring.
Finally we met in the gardens of Trinity Hospice to make the DVD. It’s been great to meet colleagues, patients and volunteers from the other hospices that serve London. Singing is such a powerful way to bring people together.St Christopher’s Community Choir is made up of patients,volunteers, bereaved family members and the local community.
It’s been a wonderful journey and let’s hope we make it to Number 1 for Christmas!”
