The Ground

Heya folks,

Here is The Ground in a glorious 8 parts. Please choose your own carefully! Look on the bright side; I haven’t decided to do the Lotti Crucifixus in 12 parts. Yet!

Take care and see you on the 14th.

Ain’t It Good

Hi Folks,

Here, as promised, albeit a couple of days later than intended, are the harmonies for Ain’t It Good. It was all recorded cheerfully early on a Monday morning, so some of the high notes are a bit ropey, but hopefully it’ll be clear enough to be useful. You may also note that it was recorded in two sections, and I managed to change the speed between them. See if you can spot the place where it’s been almost seamlessly grafted together!…

Take care and see you Sunday 2nd March.

Bells, bells, wherever we look there are bells!


Hi folks,

Here are the harmonies for the two new carols. They’re done as mp3s, which means, I gather from Cecilia’s research, that you don’t need to download them to listen to them and they are clearer. Hope they work for everyone. My voice may have been giving out by the end! Also, I’ve sung these quite loud, to sound clearly over the piano; the dynamics are, therefore, not to be trusted!

See you soon,

Bethlehem, after all this time…

Hi folks,

Here are the harmonies for Bethlehem. More to follow as we ascertain precisely what is required of us this Christmas.

But Bethlehem is a non-negotiable!

It’s a different file-type this time, hopefully making it easier to download if you need to. Any problems, do let me know.

All the best,

Hi folks,

Whilst I know the basses and sopranos are quite happy with this, just to help sort out those funny jumps for the altos, and to give newcoming tenors a sporting chance (!), here are the Alto and Tenor parts for the Karl Jenkins Sanctus

Take care and see you on the 27th

Lux Aeterna

Hi folks,

Finally, after battling with the Internet, here are the recordings various of the Lux Aeterna which I know you’re dying to hear. As ever, the battle with the voice at the end of a week of teaching makes them less then beautiful, and there’s a horribly tuned notes in the Alto ones (at ‘et perducant’) for which I can only apologise. Nonetheless, hopefully this will be helpful. The first track is roughly what it should sound like when everyone’s singing at the same time (and you’ll be pleased to know it’s not me overlaid 8 times!)

All the best and see you on Monday 30th

Tomorrow Shall Be…

Heya folks,

This is it; the last one for Christmas! Be warned, it’s exceedingly fast but has the virtue of also being short and repetitive. We’ll give this one a quick go on Monday but, for now, have a listen if you get the chance.

See you soon,
