Great to see everyone again this week and welcome to three new members!
Last week we worked on the two ‘modern’ carol settings – Bleak Midwinter and Joy to the world. Recordings of these can be found at http://www.oup.com/popvwchristmas
They are in a new collection called Popular Voiceworks at Christmas, published by OUP this year. You might enjoy listening to some of the other pieces while you are on site!
I am away next week, so the rehearsal will be taken by Terry McNamara from Witney. He has helped us out before – please give him a huge CNCS welcome.
Terry will start work on On Christmas Night by Bob Chilcott, hopefully singing through all of it (that’ll be you!) and picking apart some moments as required. Nick will forward a link to rehearsal tracks so you can do some homework – thank you.
What we will do on 27.11.19
It is the AGM this week. We will rehearse as normal until the break then stop for the AGM.
MUSIC: On Christmas Night – Highlights. Bleak Midwinter and Joy to the world (pop) to keep them ticking over and Ring the bells. Sopranos and Altos will also sing through When the sun’s reborn.
