A little note on our little Christmas Album:

 

This album features 84 singers from all over the world who have each learned and recorded their songs individually from the lounge rooms, then sent them to us to master them into one full and fabulous choir. 

While we may have learned and recorded them separately, the process of learning the songs virtually has created global connections that will last for years to come. 

This album is evidence that not even a global pandemic is enough to keep the human spirit from singing.  

Soul Song Choirs was founded by Jacqueline Larsen in 2010 and currently has choirs in Cairns and Brisbane. She created in the Viral Choir in March 2020 as a way to keep members of Soul Song singing even when we couldn’t meet together physically.

Very quickly it lived up to its name and we had members joining from all over Australia and far beyond. The voices on this album come from Australia, Hong Kong, Singapore, Germany, England, Scotland, Canada and the USA. 

Jacqueline Larsen taught all songs  virtually via live streamed rehearsals, video tutorials and audio learning tracks. 

The rehearsals would not have been the success that they were without the massive contributions of Harmonie Larsen and Anthony Morris. The impact that their comedy, talent, patience and counsel had should never be underestimated and we are all very grateful.  

The album was mixed by Jacqueline Larsen with additional mastering by Anthony Morris. 

In addition to the album, we have produced the 12 Days of Virtual Choir Christmas videos.  We will be releasing a video for each of these songs every day from 14-25  December 2020, including one bonus song not on this album.  

To catch these videos as they drop, subscribe to our YouTube Channel or follow us on Facebook - just search for Soul Song Choirs on either platform or click here
