Who are Virtual Voices?

Waltham St Lawrence Virtual Voices was formed in April 2020.

We are a collaboration of singers from the Waltham St Lawrence church choir, Chorate Chamber Choir, Waltham Madrigals and other singing friends, directed by Simon Shaw with organist Camilla Jarnot.

Our purpose was to keep singing in the absence of normal choir activities and to produce music for the online services from WSL church.

To do this, we recorded our parts individually at home to specially-created backing tracks, either from a PC or played by Camilla, and then mixed the recordings together.

Recordings

VV have produced two CDs of anthems and other music mostly recorded for WSL Online Church Services between April 2020 and July 2021...
together with other material done for our own entertainment and, we hope, yours!

In view of the impact of the pandemic on musicians and on churches, the proceeds from these CDs are split equally between WSL Parish Chruch and the Musicians Benevolent Fund.

Their Sound Is Gone Out

Our first CD, which contains a widely varied selection of sacred music, including Rheinberger's Requiem in Eb (Op 84) to commemorate all those who have lost their lives (or their loved ones) to Covid-19.

So its themes cover Contemplation, Commemoration, and Renewal as we emerged from lockdown.

Praise the Lord O Jerusalem!

Our second collection focusses on seasonal music from Harvest, through Remembrance, to Advent and Christmas.  Also Byrd's Mass for Five Voices - a master composer at the pinnacle of Elizabethan music.

We especially enjoyed collaborating with Chorate Chamber Choir for the Christmas items which were included in their 2020 Christmas Charity Concert online - "No Zoom at the Inn" as well as the WSL Carol Service.
