A hundred UK gospel singers record album at Abbey Road.

THE MOST prestigious album in the history of British gospel music is set for release in October by EMI Virgin. 'The Best Gospel Album In The World...Ever!' will be advertised on mainstream UK TV beginning in October. The project brings together members of five choirs, Urban Voices (based in Manchester), The Roy Johnson Singers (Leeds), The Liverpool Philharmonic Gospel Choir, The Peoples' Christian Fellowship Choir (London) and The One Voice Community Choir (Preston) under the name 100 Voices. The album was produced by music business veteran Gordon Lorenz with the choir directed by Tyndale Thomas and David Daniel at Abbey Road Studios. Said Lorenz, "It is believed this is the first time that massed gospel choirs have been brought together for such a recording. From Manchester, Leeds, Preston, Liverpool and London the singers arrived, during a hot June weekend, at the famous EMI, Abbey Road Studios in London, to sing the songs that actually do make the whole world happy, but more importantly, songs that never fail to inspire, enlighten, comfort and give hope to us all - just as they did all those many years ago."

that is a very wonderful action taken by that musician because it will ensure unionism among different denominations in the world so, more power to the musician`s elbow.
