We are off and running...
Welcome back everyone. We have had a wonderful beginning to a new session. I am delighted with the sound of the choir. There has been so much growth this year.
I am really looking forward to our concert on May 6.
We have accomplished so much already.
Here's a summary,
This is My Home - Letter A, B, C, D - words and notes
Letter E and F - reading the french language - big thanks to Pat A.
Letter G , H, I, J and K - words and notes
PLEASE NOTE: the video included here IS NOT EXACTLY THE SAME ORDER OF VERSES AS WE HAVE IN OUR MUSIC, but it is basically the same arrangement.
Hallelujah - measure 1 -15.
Caution: measure 12 for the tenors and altos - listen to the rhythm carefully
For those who have a little extra time - listen to your recordings - (contact Charlene Janes if you don't have it) - paying close attention to how the rhythms change
according to the text.
Canadian Pacific - beginning to measure 69 - words! words! words!
I've included a video of Larry Nickel's choir - the acoustic is very alive so its easy for the words to get really muddy - that means we must know the words well. What I really like is the ease with which the choir sings this.
Song for Peace - beginning to measure 38.
This is going to be fun. How many words and notes can you remember?
Have a great week everyone.
