On a festive note, Alice recently completed a project for Oxford University Press, arranging Christmas songs. The songs were part of a choral book for junior schools entitled Junior Voiceworks at Christmas.
Alice created large-scale orchestral backing tracks for an accompanying CD. Schools use this CD to help the children practice and perform the songs. The book is edited by Kevin Stannard, who also used Alice's backing tracks to record live performances with an amateur choir from the Coventry Blue Coat School - see the links below.
