That Day We Sang archiveThat Day We Sang is the story of some of the children who sang on the famous recording of 'Nymphs and Shepherds' by the Manchester Children's Choir. The piece takes as its starting point a television documentary being made 45 years after the event, triggering memories of the day itself and the years in between. It's about the joy of singing, the power of music to evoke emotion, and being middle aged. The four people taking part in the documentary re-connect with their child selves as they piece together their memories of that day in the Free Trade Hall in 1929.
