Another review of the Choir CD and DVD

From Colin Brownlee in Wallsend

Just a quick note to say the CD and DVD arrive safely. Most impressed with the care someone had taken over the DVD – it was most enjoyable. As to the CD, congratulations on such a fine choir and it was a real joy to hear them.
