Somewhere in My Heart, by Aztec Camera

originally written and performed by Aztec Camera (Love, 1987) with a version as arranged by Stephen Wren (2018). We were directed for this performance by our Musical Director, Callum Morton Hüseyin.

Take Note Choir in Edinburgh presents our first video after lots of hard work and swearing. It was such a rewarding effort and we enjoyed every bit of it!

Singing is what we love to do and we will keep on doing it. If you are a keen singer, we’d love to have you join us by emailing our committee.

Not ready to start singing? Please still follow us on Instagram, Facebook and our Youtube and Vimeo (please subscribe for future videos!) Channels!

Huge thanks to Lewis (Occult Productions) and Pinescope Productions for all your editing magic and to the whole choir for working so hard.
