The Bach Choir features on the soundtrack to the new John Lewis Christmas advert

A few weeks ago, members of The Bach Choir gathered at Abbey Road Studios in St. John’s Wood on a secret mission! Without realising it at the time, they were there to record backing vocals for a ‘major Christmas advert’. It took less than an hour to record the choral parts for what would become the John Lewis advert music ‘One Day I’ll Fly Away’. Those in the know had to keep it ‘hush hush’ (because of the predictable media interest) until last Thursday, when the ad was launched. A ‘making of’ documentary was filmed which has been broadcast on Sky and is also due to be uploaded to You Tube. If you haven’t seen this year’s advert yet click here and listen carefully for the choir! You can also buy the single on iTunes.
