This is the third volume in our EP series ‘The Library’. The idea behind this series is to explore, maintain and develop our library of close-harmony repertoire. Close-harmony is arguably the part of our work for which we are best known, and our library of thousands of arrangements is one we’re determined always to nurture.

The track-listing of each volume in this series is designed to celebrate old favourites from this library alongside brand new arrangements, created especially for these recordings, which may perhaps become ‘old favourites’ of the future.

Volume 3 was recorded during a brief lift in UK pandemic restrictions, and provided a wonderful focus for us as we came back together after lockdown to rehearse and record it over two sunny days at the Yehudi Menuhin School in the south of England.
