Excellent. Very well filmed –

I say that as someone married to a former BBC Proms director.”

Jordan Hunt – Songs Without

In July we recorded a concert for the Michael Cuddigan Trust at Aldeburgh Parish Church, which included the world premiere of Songs Without, a piece commissioned by the Michael Cuddigan Trust, by Jordan Hunt (@jordanhuntmusic).

“Thank you so much for our CD I just received in the post today! It sounds really fantastic! Who did the recording, because they’re seriously good!” – Jordan Hunt in an email to Anne Cuddigan

Here is that complete live recording:

Southwell Music Festival 2015

This year we were asked to make 12 videos for the Twelve Days of Christmas 2015, a selection of highlights from what was an amazing festival!

Camera man Tom‘s favourite was undoubtedly the Ades (day 8!), and Producer Alexander rather enjoyed making the Haydn (day 11).

Audition Videos

We are often asked to make videos for auditions, which have very strict requirements: Videos have to be one continuous take, with no changes of angle or edits made to the audio.

Here’s a recent example, featuring Katerina Nazarova performing Bach

Louise Kemény

Louise Kemény – soprano

Peter Foggitt – piano

Alexander Barnes – Producer


Here is a short promotional video made by Alexander Barnes, featuring his arrangement of Pharrell Williams’ song Happy, for our friends at Blue Topaz
