A MASSED choir made up of more than 500 school pupils and their teachers recorded two songs for the Olympics.

Durham School is hopeful Twenty-One-Two will be adopted as the song for the region.

The recording took place in the school’s chapel off Quarryheads Lane in Durham City.

Twenty-One-Two was written by James A Gilman, who has a grandson at the school.

It was scored by the school’s Director of Music, Roger Muttitt.

The choir recorded a second song, London Calls!, to mark the paralympics.

Both songs will be available to download on iTunes and on CD.
