One World with Sir Karl Jenkins

A brand new work by Sir Karl Jenkins, presenting a vision of a peaceful and egalitarian planet.

Stay At Home Choir is delighted to be performing two tracks on One World, a new album from Sir Karl Jenkins, which will be released on Decca Records next year.

One of the planet’s most-performed living composers, Karl Jenkins has written this new work for the World Orchestra For Peace and the World Choir For Peace.

It's the perfect piece for our amazing global community.

One World blends together languages and musical styles, ancient and modern, from around the world to create a vision of a better society, with inspiration from texts as diverse the Bible, the Hindu Gayatri Mantra, and the poetry of  English Romantic poet Percy Bysshe Shelley.

We'll be working with Sir Karl on two movements for the album this September. The album will be released on Decca Records in June 2023. 

About One World

We will be rehearsing and recording two brand-new compositions for the One World album: Tower of Babel and Savitur.

Rehearsals will take place over three weeks and will include sessions with Sir Karl as well as sectionals and tutti rehearsals with Jamie and Tori, and US-timezone-friendly rehearsals with Graham. 


Submissions

Submissions will close on 17th October 2022, and all submitted vocals will be included on the final album release.  

The One World album will be released in June 2023, with the world premiere performance of the work being given  in Hannover, Germany.

We're very excited to make history again as the first virtual choir ever to be featured on a major record label. 

Join us and be part of this new recording!

FAQs

  • I'm unable to join the live rehearsals, can I watch them back later?

    Yes! All of our projects are streamed live to Youtube. You can join in live in Zoom or on Youtube and all rehearsals will be made available to watch back as many times as you like. (usually within 24 hours)

  • Do I have to submit audio? Can I just take part in the rehearsals?

    Not if you don’t want to! It’s absolutely fine for you to just come along to rehearsals and take part in the process without submitting your audio recording. There is an option to submit video as well as audio for this project - this is also optional.

  • I've not sung in an in-person choir before and don't have much/any choir experience, can I still take part?

    Absolutely! We provide all the materials you need to learn the music for our projects, including the score, voice-part specific rehearsals, and learning tracks. With members from over 75 countries with every possible experience level we make sure that whichever way you learn there are the resources you need.

  • Do I need to be an SAHC Subscriber to join this project?

    No you don't! Anyone can join this project at any time while the project is open. Subscribers have access to additional workshop content separate from our regular projects; and also receive a 20% discount on all projects. See this page for more information.
