On Wednesday the Choir had an amazing time helping The Shantymen record a track for their latest album. We all crowded in to the canteen surrounded by cables, microphones and other assorted musical equipment to sing a cover of Rod Stewart's Sailing. After a short rehearsal to warm up our voices and set the levels we got down to the serious business of recording. We had to be patient, however, as it took four takes and nearly an hour to lay down a version everyone was happy with.
Many thanks to The Shantymen for letting us sing on their new CD and we look forward to hearing the final mix soon.
