Read about some of our recent recording projects and the people we have worked with.
ANZAC Day Centenary Concert
On April 25th 2015 there were many events celebrating the Centenary of ANZAC Day. Soundwright was asked to record this memorable concert in the magnificent Cardinal Ceretti Chapel, Manly, performed by the Mater Chorale. The exquisite acoustics of this chapel were eminently suitable for the style of music presented by this group of talented musicians. The music was chosen especially for the occasion from the choir’s wide repertoire of well-known classics and contemporary compositions.

A Collection of Christmas Hymns & Chants
This album features the Sydney-based vocal ensemble Prima Luce and was recorded in November 2014 in the Crypt of St Mary's Cathedral, Sydney.
The recording without doubt represents a true reflection of Prima Luce's exceptional talent. It is a rare pleasure to work with a group of people who are so gifted. Their attention to detail in maintaining the highest standard of performance, and the fact that they thoroughly enjoy what they do, makes them a delight to work with.
Also, the recording location was yet another brilliant choice. The natural acoustics in the Crypt of St Mary's Cathedral created a magical atmosphere which could not have been simulated electronically. Altogether, a brilliant combination of talent and venue. The fact that ABC Classic FM played quite a few selections from this album prior to Christmas was a most satisfying confirmation of the merits of this production.
Sydney University Musical Society
Stella Natalis October 2014
Vivaldi Magnificat & Schubert Mass May 2014
Back to Bach June 2013
We have been recording Sydney University Musical Society's performances for about 10 years. It is always a delightful and rewarding experience, since they continually take on challenging projects and handle them extremely well. We have recorded them in several venues, including the Sydney University Great Hall, St Andrew's Cathedral, Sydney Grammar School and Hunter Baillie Memorial Presbyterian Church. Wherever we have recorded their performances, the results have been very satisfying. Over the past couple of years, their performances under the musical direction of Tim Chung have been amongst their best.
Thank you for the CD of Stella Natalis. Wonderful work once again! So clear! Trumpet and soprano soloists wonderful, aren't they! … I have listened to the recordings and I think the quality you produced is stunning… I've now had a good listen to the recording and it is very clear and true to the actual performance in that space… Thanks again for producing such a clear and resonant recording.

Turramurra High School Bands
After Sunset November 2014
Occasionally we come across a school where a particular style of music is played incredibly well. Under the musical direction of Mark Barnsley, two concert bands and three stage bands have created a unique musical culture of which the school can be very proud. Their senior concert band is of such a high standard that they toured Europe recently, performing in such prestigious places as Prague and Vienna.
It was a real pleasure to work with such an enthusiastic and talented group of young musicians.
I sincerely want to thank you for the wonderful work you did for us in producing the Music CD. It's going fantastic and everyone is raving about it.
