Photos from our evening at the Albert hall

I was so delighted to take part in Prom Praise 2011. Playing with the All Souls Orchestra (over 100 great musicians and wonderful backroom staff) was a buzz in itself, especially as the only electric instrument in the orchestra. But the thousands of enthusiastic school kids sang so beautifully, the night seemed filled with smiles, Twyford Gospel Choir were wonderful and the mixing desk guys obviously loved electric bass. From the comments afterwards, everyone heard the bass loud and clear – mixed superbly with orchestra and thousands of voices. What a way to praise God!

We played some great tunes too: a funky gospel arrangements of Handel’s Messiah, a brass-laden, funky Israel Houghton tune, two different arrangements of Amazing Grace (one with a wonderful drum choir performance) by Psalm Drummers, a Take That tune, some great worship tunes, Riverdance and classical pieces by Britten and Copeland. Some great arrangements from Noel Tredinnick and Mike Simpson too!

Here are some photos taken at the rehearsal immediately before the show:
