Gareth Malone: "I was looking for a gang that I could be in that was choral!"

The choirmaster caught up with Lucy Coward on the red carpet at the Classic BRIT Awards 2013 ahead of performing the theme to Broadchurch with his new choir, Voices.

It's been a hectic year for Gareth Malone , who's barely stopped since last year's Classic BRIT Awards at which he and the Military Wives scooped the award for Best Classical Single. In the past few months, he's auditioned and selected singers for his latest project, Voices - as well as becoming a father for the second time!

Ahead of his performance on the Royal Albert Hall stage, Gareth explained his plans for the choir. 

"We all love choral music and we are here to show that choral music is for a whole new generation of people," he told Classic FM's Lucy Coward.

Could we be in the presence of this year's Christmas No. 1 artist?
