GROVE STUDIOS, LONDON
In this brand new rousing
tribute to mums everywhere, Gilbert teamed up with the Treorchy
Male Choir, a renowned Rhonnda Valley institution with 130 years of
international success under its belt. The choirís current line-up has appeared
on radio, TV, feature films and has contributed to recordings by Queen and Bob
Marley among others.
Recording took place at
British Grove Studios in London with the choir being recorded in Cardiff, after
Gilbert had the idea of writing a song especially for Motherís Day this year.
The result is a characteristically catchy track with all the hallmarks of
Gilbertís craftsmanship; distinctive vocals, friendly lyrics and an
irresistible refrain propelled by an excellent orchestral arrangement by Laurie
Mum was mixed by Jon Kelly .
Jon is known for his work with Chris Rea, Kate Bush and The Beautiful South,
among others. The choir was sequenced and recorded by Rupert Christie at
Acapela Studios Cardiff.
