HERTFORDSHIRE Chorus are featuring on a BBC Radio 2 special broadcast to mark Good Friday tomorrow.

At The Foot Of The Cross was recorded in St Albans Abbey and includes the choir performing Faure’s Requiem as a centrepiece for the programme which is being presented by Aled Jones.

And there was another boost for the Hertfordshire Chorus this week – The Band of the Coldstream Guards’ album Pride of the Nation featuring the choir singing Zadok the Priest, is number one in the Classic FM album chart.

Musical director David Temple said: “This is a great tribute to the quality and energy of the Chorus and we are very proud to have been part of such a wonderful album.”
