A Concert for Christmas Margaret Keys with The Fishpond Choir & Bel Canto Male Chorus

Margaret Keys is returning to Belper after wowing the audience when she opened the Belper Arts Festival. Her concert on 1 December begins a series of high profile appearances in the run up to Christmas. Over the past couple of weeks Margaret has been recording a new album and I caught up with her between sessions. It will be her second album of the year. 'The Gift Of Music' reached number two on the classical chart and I started by asking her what it felt like to have a 'chart topping' album.
