I’ve heard better youth choir albums than this one, but I’ve heard worse… a lot worse… as well. Recorded at Anlaby Park Methodist Church, Hull, the soloists are OK without being spectacular, the choice of material is pretty wide (Hillsongs “From The Mountains” to Iona Community’s John Bell’s “We Will Lay Our Burdens Down” to Mozart’s “Ave Verum”). The tracks that worked best were acapella traditional choral things like “Praise The Lord – Cheltenham Psalms” though the backing band, called B4U, are excellent with bass player Ben Connor’s song “Responsibilities” an outstanding number deserving of wider exposure.

Yes, as a member of a choir, i agree with you Jade! We do put a lot of effort into rehearsals and concerts. Also the other week we did a performance of Jesuschrist Superstar! and it was fantastic the audience loved it. So please who ever wrote this review please consider coming to one of our concerts to see how good we are! Maybe you will be shocked....
