We don’t like to be the first to mention the seasonal “C” word, but we have just spent a surreal few days – the warmest of the British summer so far – recording Christmas songs! It is reminiscent of a balmy summer spent recording our own Christmas album, The Promise…
This time however, we are working with Nigel Hemming, doing guest vocals on the Carols in the City Christmas CD due out this coming Autumn.
Carols in the City is a visionary ecumenical event pioneered by the Vineyard church. For the past few years – under the musical direction of Nigel Hemming – who is Assistant Pastor and worship coordinator at the Vineyard Network Church in Birmingham – Christian musicians & singers from across the city have joined to lead a massive open-air carol service in the heart of Birmingham’s City Centre. Apart from being great fun it has been a profound and practical witness of unity in our theological diversity.
Now, the spirit of that live event is being captured on a recording, and it really is very, very exciting to be a part of it. Watch this space for news of the release in the autumn.
