Paul has recently arranged and recorded several pieces for the Church of England Advent Podcast series (further details below). The vocals are sung by Judith Hawes. Whilst the arrangements will be heard in full on three of the podcasts, you can hear (and download) two recordings directly:

- Let all mortal flesh keep silence
- Hark! a herald voice is calling
