This term

The choir is still operating but as a virtual choir for the time being.  There are two on-line rehearsals each week.

With the challenges of the Coronavirus pandemic we continue to operate but as a virtual choir.  We rehearse using Zoom at 1-2pm on Mondays and 7.30-9.00pm on Wednesdays.  We are preparing short and long term projects.  Our long term project is Dan Forrest’s Jubilate Deo.  We are also currently recording an arrangement of This Little Light of Mine as a virtual choir.

There are some extremely good learning resources available from the composer’s website: https://danforrest.com/music-catalog/jubilate-deo/ . Click on rehearsals aids to find a video with the music scrolling by as the piece is performed and below that are learning files for each voice part – with the part dominant or the only voice.

There is a very good performance by the Rivertree Singers on Spotify and Youtube and an another good performance on Youtube recorded in Salzburg Cathedral.
