I’ve looked at the poll and gone through old polls to find what you’ve enjoyed singing. So here’s the plan!
A festive warm up to start with:
First half – classic Liberty Bangers.
One day like this
Read my mind
For the tea break, you’re welcome to bring snacks for yourselves and immediate friends/choir neighbours. To keep the mingling to a minimum, I’m not making this a formal ‘sharing’ thing. I know you’ll be sensitive and thoughtful to your fellow singers. (or just bring a box one mince pies and eat them all yourself!! What a great excuse!!)
Second Half – Christmas Cheer!
I’ll re-teach White Winter Hymnal – its an acapella song and we’ve nailed it in the past…. and we will nail it again…
Let’s have a crack out our fabulous ‘O Holy Night’ – I’d like to record this for the Christmas Singing on Wednesday 22nd December so if you’d like a little catch up on the harmonies, they’re on the website!
Hark the Herald angels sing – despite never having sung this at choir, it seems to have been heavily voted for. Who I am to argue!? I’m pretty sure there are a few reds who know the descant. Knock yourselves out – I don’t know it!
We had a go at Mary’s Boy Child online last year so I’ve obviously no idea what it sounds like!!
Let’s add in ‘Winter Wonderland’
And to finish….
And not a furry coat song in sight!!!
I look forward to seeing you all. Originally I had planned to have the last rehearsal on the 13th for everyone but with the recent covid news I’ve decided against that decision. My priority is to keep you safe as well as happy.
These two sessions will be the last for this year. The Songbirds/Alokonosts will be back on the 10th January and the Nightingales the 17th. We’ll have a break for half term.
There are some building works scheduled at Lutterell Hall and as soon as I have information about when that is, I will share that with you all.
