Joris's wife Sam McCarthy provided crucial support and through her company Open Book organised filming of the session and interviews with various trade magazines.
In order to get a realistic orchestral sound, sections of the orchestra were recorded in their original seating positions.

The session contained a full Brass section with added Cimbasso. Strings were recorded on the first day, with Brass and Woodwinds (woodwinds seen here) on the 2nd day and a 30 piece Choir in the evening. Balance Engineer Rich Aitken was on hand to ensure that all the seperate recorded elements would fit together in the final mix.
