Fisher said: "This recording is the culmination of eight years of development. Over the years ‘Gabriel' has involved various drafts, play-throughs, workshops, demo recordings, and a full performance, with the aim of a studio castrecording, slated for this autumn. And then COVID hit. Though the odds were against us, we finished it through some impressive teamwork thanks to the goodwill of all involved, all the time observing the restrictions of the pandemic, with singers and musicians either recording remotely or one-by-one in a COVID-safe recording studio.
"That we have achieved it in time for Christmas, is a tribute to the unbeatable kindness and goodwill of the stellar talent I have been privileged to work with. I am more grateful than I can say."
