The title Sing Joyfully could not be more appropriate for this inaugural recording of the Mill Hill Foundation Chapel Choir. Not only does the choir sing with immense joy, it also gives great joy to the whole school community by performing wonderful choral music each week, both in Belmont and Mill Hill Chapel services.
The formation of the choir has been one of the most exciting developments in the Foundation during the past three years, and it has quickly become established as a central part of our communal life. In addition to regular week-day services, the choir sings Choral Evensong during the year and performs at Mill Hill’s most significant school events including Foundation Day, the Remembrance Service, and most notably the Christmas Service of Nine Lessons and Carols. Beyond Mill Hill, the choir has a growing reputation, with engagements at national venues such as Westminster Central Hall and York Minster.
The words Sing Joyfully also have deep symbolic associations with a beautiful stained glass window in the Mill Hill School Chapel, where this CD was recorded. One of these windows depicts David, the king and musician who wrote many of the Psalms in which the words ‘sing joyfully’ appear on numerous occasions.
There is no doubt that the singing on this compilation will bring joy to all who listen.
