The best of 2015 from Glorious Chorus
The two videos below were filmed live at Glorious Chorus’s Totnes Christmas concert on 20th December and show the choir performing two of their favourite songs. Little Drummer Boy, based on the Pentatonix arrangement, features beatboxing by Taschi.
These new videos of Glorious Chorus are from the summer 2015 repertoire and feature three of the favourite songs of the season - Jerusalem, Unto This Land and Saved. Helen’s arrangement of Jerusalem takes the song back to it’s roots, introducing a brand new chorus and a change in time signature. Unto This Land is a new earth blessing inspired by Hafiz and Saved is a soul show-stopper featuring new soloist Fran Andre. Enjoy!
