The group recorded O Holy Night on the album, track nine, along with three other military choirs, in Colchester this September.

All of the voices from every military wives choir have also been blended together to create the lead single, Home for Christmas.

Other military choirs from all over the country have contributed to other tracks on the album.

Emma Jones, chair of the choir said: “The whole thing is something we are really proud of and excited to have been a part of.”

It is available to view at and the album can be bought on Amazon or from iTunes.

The group is now busy rehearsing for The Royal British Legion’s carol service in Thaxted on Sunday December 11, where they will perform.
