- FOLKLORE STYLE CALYPSO & SOCA - LIVE
The Signal Hill Alumni Choir's repertoire for this concert recording includes Folk, African, Reggae, Gospel, Negro Spirituals and of course, Calypso renditions. The event was held at the auditorium of the Central Bank of Trinidad and Tobago on September 11 and 12, 1998. The producer and other chorale music enthusiasts eagerly awaited the choir's performance of Ray Holman's arrangement of Merchant's powerful O'Trinidad lyrics. "We were all blown away by the spirituality of that performance" is how Simeon Sandiford described the performance. It is only one of the 70 odd minutes on this CD.
