Our latest CD - UNITY May they all be one - was launched at a concert in Clonard Monastery, Belfast, on Friday 16th November 2018.
The CD takes its title from Ut omnes unum sint - Christ's exhortation for unity amongst his followers - which was composed by Sir James MacMillan for the choir's 20th anniversary. The title track was recorded in Good Shepherd Church, Belfast, on 12th March 2016, conducted by the composer and also featuring Cappella's founder members The Priests.
The remaining tracks were recorded in St Bernadette's Church, Belfast, on 3th and 4th March 2018, conducted by Donal McCrisken. The recording engineer and producer was Stephen Hamill, who also acted as organist on tracks 11 and 15.
