Gareth Malone unveils new choir to reinvent choral music
The television choirmaster's new recruits will sing "Guillotine" by Death Grips and other unconventional arrangements
Gareth Malone has unveiled the new choir, hand-picked after a nationwide talent search, which will accompany the television choirmaster on his latest project.
Malone has chosen 17 young singers whose task is to expand the British choral repertoire and develop “a completely new style and sound-world for choirs”.
The results, released on Malone’s new album Voices, includes a choral interpretation of "Guillotine" by Death Grips, a US experimental punk-rap group.
The record features Malone’s arrangements of modern classics by artists including Fleet Foxes and Alicia Keys.
The new choir assembled by Malone, who topped the charts with the Military Wives, the group formed from the partners of serving military personnel in Afghanistan, features singers gathered from across the UK, aged 18 to 26.
