We were asked to re-record a pastiche of the classic Modern Major-General’s Song from Gilbert and Sullivan’s 1879 comic opera The Pirates of Penzance. The musical arrangement was to be as per the orchestral original but the lyrics were re-written to inspire the general public. The creatives had written some great words to replace the original lyrics and we then helped mould and shape them to really create a perfect pastiche. We then recorded an 18 piece choir from Crouch End Festival Chorus, led by their Chorus Master, David Temple MBE at the legendary Livingston Studios in Wood Green. They delivered an amazing rendition of our new lyrics. It was real pleasure to work with everyone involved and with such a classic song. Winner – Music & Sound Awards 2019 – Best Re-record.
