Orpheus Recordings

A Song for You - released May 2015

Musical Director: Louise Langley
Accompanist: Thelma King

A Song for YouThe tracks on this CD were recorded over two Saturdays during October 2014 in Wesley Methodist Church, High Wycombe, which is the home of the Wycombe Orpheus Male Voice Choir. This venue, as well as being familiar surroundings for the Choir, has a fine acoustic allowing the rounded sound of male voice singing to be heard at its best.


The picture on the CD sleeve has been taken from the Choir’s Annual Concert Programme for 2014 which took as its theme the anniversary of the commencement of hostilities in the First World War. A medley of songs of the time is included on this CD.


This CD is the fifth in a series of recordings charting the musical history of the Orpheus over the last twenty years.  We hope you enjoy it – sample the sound by clicking on “Sailing” in the list below:
