The winner is announced...
November 2014: Congratulations go to the winner of the Crouch End Festival Chorus carol competition: the composer Richard James Harvey, for his carol Chanticleer.
With a very high standard of entries, the competition has been a great success, and has provided a fitting end to the choir's 30th anniversary year. Musical director David Temple said: “Richard’s winning carol Chanticleer has a wonderfully festive feel and will prove popular with singers and audiences alike. I feel that we have uncovered a real gem!”
Chanticleer will be performed at the CEFC Sing Christmas concert at St Michael's Highgate on 20 December. The new work will take its place alongside festive favourites including Once in Royal David's City and Hark! The Herald Angels Sing, as well as modern classics such as Lauridsen's Ave Maria and Tavener's The Lamb.
