With so many concerts cancelled due to COVID-19 restrictions, the Orchestra was thrilled to be able to record this unique production at the end of October in the stunning surroundings of St Albans Cathedral (complying fully with regional restrictions and social distancing regulations) and is proud to be able to share it with online audiences worldwide.
