I’ve enjoyed these for a while now and here is a new one:

From the YouTube page:

The Stay At Home Choir presents ‘Locus Iste’ by Gareth Malone, performed by 1500 singers from around the world, accompanied by Gareth Malone on piano and Gabriella Swallow on cello.

‘Locus Iste’ was specially written by Gareth Malone for the Stay At Home Choir to perform. This moving but optimistic piece is a new setting of a traditional Latin text used to consecrate churches: “locus iste a Deo factus est (this place was made by God)”. Written during lockdown, the song inspires us to find the sacred in our everyday spaces.

Our global choir took part in the ‘Locus Iste’ project over four weeks in April-May 2021. This final video is the culmination of online rehearsals, masterclasses, and global socials led by Gareth Malone, choirmaster Graham Bier, and Stay At Home Choir co-founders Tori Longdon and Jamie Wright.
