The Huddersfield Choral Society has an international reputation as the UK's leading choral society, producing a unique and full-bodied 'Huddersfield Sound'.
This disc features some of our nation's most loved hymns and we hope that you'll agree that no better expression of the joy engendered by a goodly number of voices singing these hymns may be found than in the grand forces of the Huddersfield Choral Society. Our range attempts to cover an unaffected, pure lyricism through to a vast, full-throated sound that might shake the rafters of the sturdiest church.
Our previous two hymn and carol albums were released in 1985; both received gold discs for achieving over 100,000 sales.
Founded in 1836, the Huddersfield Choral Society has developed an international reputation as one of the UK's leading choral societies.
The Society's busy schedule is centred on its own subscription concert season in Huddersfield Town Hall, including its annual performances of Messiah. The choir also performs in other major concert venues in the UK and abroad, it regularly broadcasts for BBC radio and television, and has a long history of pioneering recordings.
