Spitfire Audio has released Epic Choir, a 50-piece large scale ensemble recorded at the renowned Lyndhurst Hall at AIR Studios, split into two sections (Sopranos & Altos and Tenors & Basses). A spokesperson told us, "Epic Choir features London's finest vocalists, presented in our in-house plug-in -- designed to inspire and ease your scoring journey."

Here's more details direct from the company...

Available across three signals (Close, Tree, and Ethereal), with 12 different articulations at your fingertips - from shorts and longs to episodic, with a range of vowel sounds. The Ethereal signal has been created using  post production FX which add an interesting textural, atmospheric quality, while keeping the organic essence of these stunning vocal performances.
