It was lovely to see everyone at our fun-filled rehearsal last Wednesday in which we not only celebrated “The Creation” Concert in Chichester but also “The Creation of Graham” 50 years ago!!

Thanks so much to Sally (and her sous chef Vaughan) who prepared and donated an incredibly wonderful spread for everyone including a fabulous birthday cake!  That together with Agnès‘ paintings of Graham’s “Mugshots” (do you see what I did there…?  🙂 ) prove that we really are a choir of many talents!

We now have some photos of the concert on our Gallery page, with Liz Stedall’s husband Robert and son Ollie amongst the contributors.   If anyone has any more please do let us know as it’s always nice to add to the collection.

Music Practise for next week

With the Tour and performances at Bignor (more details to follow shortly) we have an incredibly busy few weeks ahead and a lot of music to learn.  Last week we covered 3 anthems from the ESM book:

  • 30. Verleih uns Frieden (Pag 208) – Youtube practise clips:  SOP  ALTO   TENOR  BASS
  • 39. Bogoroditsye Dyevo (page 278)
  • 53. O vos omnes (Page 361)  – Youtube practise clips:  SOP  ALTO   TENOR  BASS

Please go over these anthems and the PDFs you printed below so that you will be ready for fine tuning it on Wednesday:

  • Blessed by God the Father
  • Rejoice in the Lord Alway

…but remember to bring ALL your music with you from now on as we may be doing anything.  There is lots of help as ever on our Music Programme & Practise page.

Extra Saturday Workshop – 23rd June

We have an extra Saturday workshop on 23rd June in the URC – 9.30 to 2.30pm.  Please put the date in your diaries – this is an extra workshop scheduled to take the pressure off a bit in learning all the new music for Autumn and Bignor, so it is important that you try to attend as we usually cover a lot in 5 hours!

Please check our Diary Dates page for all future dates.

Jill’s Funeral – tomorrow

Hopefully everyone who is joining in the singing for Jill’s funeral tomorrow will know the details.  If not please contact us and we will pass your query on to Emma Foden, who has been helping with the arrangements.
