Our Christmas Carol on the BBC

At our practice session at the Beechwood on 23rd November 2016 we recorded the Pentonville tune version of "While Shepherds Watched" and if you would like to listen to this you can download one of the .mp3 files below. The larger files are higher audio quality. This recording is scheduled for broadcast on BBC Sussex and BBC Surrey on Friday 23 December at about 10.50am. Full details are in the email below from the BBC.

Your Christmas Carols on the BBC!

Dear all

I’d like to say a big thank you to everyone who has submitted a recording of a Christmas carol or a song.

A number of contributors asked me when the recordings would be aired, so that you could alert all involved to listen. Please find below a list of some of the choirs that we will be featuring in the next couple of weeks. You may well feature more than once in the next few days, but we just wanted to make sure that you had at least one confirmed “appointment to listen”. Suffice to say, if you are a new listener, we hope you like what you hear and will stay with us! Do tune in, but also use social media to tell your friends and family.

BBC Sussex broadcasts on 104.5/104.8 and on 95.3FM (Brighton). We are now also on DAB Digital Radio, and online at www.bbc.co.uk/sussex. Social media: Twitter - @bbcsussex www.facebook.com/bbcsussex
