Music for September 2018
Friday 08 June 2018

Some words of wisdom from several conductors:

Take risks - Look up - Keep reading ahead.

Read and understand the piece you're singing so that you express the meaning. 

Very important to LISTEN to other sections of the choir so that a piece works as a whole. 

Counting is the responsibility of every single member of the choir.

Learn Choral Music (Midi file downloads)

Mozart Requiem, Levin version.  Here's a lovely version of the Levin to listen to (thank you Chris for recommending this). You can get downloadable midi files for separate SATB parts from Learn Choral Music.

Val Arundel has sent us a splendid BBCmedia player link explaining many of the changes between the Sussmayr and Levin versions of the Mozart Requiem. It makes interesting listening and was broadcast before a recent prom performance. 

Brahms Geisliches Lied : John Elliott Gardner version.  Another with Richard Wilberforce as counter tenor. And here's one by Morphthing1 where the score scrolls for you all to follow (sung by St Brides choir, London.

Vaughn Williams: Lord, Thou Hast Been Our Refuge.  A Lovely clear  version by The Concordia Choir
