About the album

Anna Lapwood is a trailblazing musician. Alongside her work as a conductor, Director of Music and public speaker, she performs an extensive number of organ recitals on some of the greatest instruments across Europe each season. In 2022 she was announced as Associate Artist of the Royal Albert Hall and Artist in Association with the BBC Singers.

This album is the second commercial release for this choir and Anna Lapwood as a conductor. It is a recording of a unique collection of contemporary choral pieces, some newly arranged pieces never before recorded, and some premiere's of new works.

The Pembroke College Girls' Choir was founded in October 2018 and has quickly gained a reputation as one of the UK's leading girls' choirs. Made up of 18 girls aged 11–18, the Choir sings twice a week in the College Chapel, as well as regularly singing alongside the Chapel Choir.

Now performing organ concertos with leading orchestras and multiple recitals each season across Europe, Anna released her debut solo album ‘Images’ on Signum Records in 2021. The recording includes her transcription for organ of Britten’s ‘Four Sea Interludes’ from “Peter Grimes, now published by Boosey & Hawkes. A new anthology of organ pieces by female composers ‘Gregoriana’, commissioned and edited by Anna, was published in 2022 by Stainer & Bell. Also in 2022, two new albums featuring the Pembroke Choirs will be released on Signum Records.

In 2021 Anna made her BBC Proms debut as a soloist in Saint-Saëns ‘Organ Symphony’ with the Hallé Orchestra conducted by Sir Mark Elder, repeating the work later that month with conductor Kazuki Yamada and the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra. Other recent performances include a concert with the BBC Singers for International Women’s Day 2022 broadcast live on Radio 3, George Baker’s ‘Toccata-Gigue’ for Classic FM from the Royal Albert Hall; an organ recital at St David’s Hall, Cardiff for BBC Radio 3, and a performance of Poulenc’s ‘Organ Concerto’ with the London Chamber Orchestra. In 2019, Anna opened the BAFTA TV awards on the organ of the Royal Festival Hall. Anna performs two organ recitals at the Aldeburgh Festival 2022 following her annual 24-hour Bach-a-thon from Pembroke College which raises money for the Muze-Pembroke Music Exchange Programme.

Making her TV presenting debut hosting coverage of BBC Young Musician, Anna was also invited to present a televised BBC Prom from the Royal Albert Hall in 2021. As a radio broadcaster she is a regular contributor to BBC Radio 3 and Radio 4, and until July 2020 she hosted a live, weekly classical music show on Radio Cambridgeshire. Anna has also been featured on Classic FM and presented for Scala Radio.

​Anna’s passion for the organ is matched by her mission to support girls and women in music. Her commitment to opportunity, equality and diversity is evident in almost every aspect of her life and work, especially in programming. Anna is humbled to find that she is an inspiration to many young women and proud that they have adopted her hashtag, #playlikeagirl
