CASTERTON SCHOOL'S

PHOENIX CHOIR

UNDER THE DIRECTION OF DAVID CHAPMAN

A number of the songs in Dreams of Peace & Freedom were written as the soundtrack for

Tom Blackmore's 2013 film

UNDER AN ENGLISH HEAVEN.

 

These  songs were recorded by

Casterton School's Phoenix Choir, under the direction of David Chapman.

We recorded on a cold November day in the parish church in Casterton. Almost all the recording equipment failed and it is testament to the excellence of the choir that the recording is as fine as it is.
