Towcester Choral Society - Songs of PraiseTowcester Choral Society - Songs of Praise

Sunday the 6th August 2017 saw 20 members of the Towcester Choral Society attend All Saints Church in Northampton for a very special event.

They along with over 500 other choir members and members of the public from around the county joined together as a mass choir to be filmed for the BBC programme 'Songs of Praise'.

They were being recorded for a special edition of the programme to be aired marking the 20th anniversary of the death of Princess Diana, Princess of Wales.

They sang ten hymns, and went through many takes to make sure the recordings sounded and looked the best they could. It was an absolutely wonderful event with the singing at a high standard from all who attended with no rehearsal it was something to be proud of. It was a long evening but everyone left on a high and felt that the evening was a success and looking very much forward to seeing the final takes to see how Northamptonshire faired.

We are lead to believe that the filming will be shown on this special edition of 'Songs of Praise' on the 27th August 2017, with more of our attendance to be shown throughout the autumn shows of their programme.

We hope that you, along with the rest of Northamptonshire tune in and see if you can spot a familiar face.
