Taking Stock: CIoT – The Abbey Road Sessions

TS went to the CIoT's President's Reception at Abbey Road Studios and bore witness to musical history

ABBEY ROAD STUDIOS holds a rightly revered and venerable spot in the history of modern music.

Since it opened in 1931, it has played host to a great many of music’s most formative moments, taking in stellar acts including The Beatles, Pink Floyd and The Hollies.

Later, artists such as the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Radiohead, the Arctic Monkeys, Lady Gaga and Bastille would all have their chance to record in what has long been a cathedral of music.

And now, for reasons quite beyond TS’s comprehension – and quite out-of-kilter with what has gone before – the Chartered Institute of Taxation can add its name to that list.

For that is what took place at Abbey Road Studios on 13 October 2015 at the CIoT’s President’s Reception, when a four-strong choir sang the institute’s Royal Charter.

TS bore witness to it, and managed to record a significant portion of the performance, which we share with you below, dear reader.

Enjoy.
