Gareth Malone – A Great British ChristmasClassical, XMAS | MP3 CBR 320 kbps | 50:20 min | 118 MBLabel: Decca (UMO) Classics | Tracks: 14 | Rls.date: 2016Christmas is a time for being together with family or friends. It’s a time for reaching out to those in need and it can be a time to remember those who are no longer with us. At the heart of those moments, music is there to help us make sense of it all.Early this year I set out to reflect the true soundtrack to Christmas in Britain. I visited community halls, schools, workplaces and people’s homes, recording the sounds I heard and weaving them into this album. It’s full of personal moments: from my first-ever publicly performed teenage composition to a song written last year inresponse to the ongoing refugee crisis and a song recorded in the shed at the bottom of my garden.You will know many of the songs but they have been reimagined for my choir ‘Voices’ and this extraordinary line-up of British musicians both professional and amateur. From Glasgow to Cornwall, Cardiff to Belfast I found a tapestry of musical delights with bell ringers, brass bands, community choirs, children’s voices and some of my musical friends as soloists. I wish you a very happy Christmas and all the joy that music can bring.” – Gareth MaloneTRACKLIST01. Walking In The Air (From “The Snowman”) 03:2202. A Spaceman Came Travelling 03:5803.
