Have your say

A CHOIR has released a CD of songs recorded on a tour around Italy.

The Chapel Choir of St John’s College, Southsea, has just released Vatican Voices.

The CD, priced at £6, contains 18 tracks of music performed during the tour, which included notable venues such as St Peter’s Basilica, the Vatican, the Papal Archbasilica in Rome, the Colosseum, and Pisa, Milan, Florence and Assisi Cathedrals.

The group of 42 choristers travelled to Italy in August last year, and as well as performing in some of the world’s most famous cathedrals were granted a rare audience with the Pope.

Keith Ellison, head of music and choirmaster, said: ‘The CD will be a wonderful keepsake for the choristers and the family and friends who joined us – but also allows us to share what was an incredible experience with others.’

All proceeds will go towards funding the Choirs’ 2013 Summer Tour to Holland, Belgium and Germany.
