Much Wenlock Male Voice Choir are pleased to announce the release of their latest recording ‘Spirit of the Edge’. The choir’s fourth recording, the album is a mixture of popular and traditional music and includes ‘Hallelujah’ a tribute to the late Leonard Cohen and one of his most loved songs. Musical Director Paul Kelly commented “This album is the culmination of a lot of hard work by the choir in the last few years, which has seen it grow in numbers and develop an individual musical voice. Credit must go to our excellent accompanist, David Fisher, and the brilliant recording and engineering skills of Richard Yeoman-Clark”
