Our Demo Recordings

Our demo recordings are created using sampled instruments painstakingly combined and balanced to create the orchestra - the intent being that with our limited resources and budget we can get as close a representation as possible of what these pieces would sound like when played by a symphonic orchestra.

 

As for the professional singers, they have all given their time freely with only a promise of a share of profits should these projects reach that goal.

 

We would love to hear these pieces performed and recorded by a real orchestra and full chorus but until that time we feel that these recordings are a wonderful representation of the work and do the important job of making these powerful pieces accessible to the general public.

We are currently working on a recording of Paul Corfield Godfrey's Musical Chapters from The Lord of the Rings after the mythology of JRR Tolkien.

This immense work, designed to be heard over six evenings, is planned for release in 2025.
