Going Home with Lesley and Paul…
Of the four new pieces this looks the trickiest from the “new boy perspective”… You tube to the rescue!
Found a version by the superb Paul Robeson which is not only very moving and but very helpful for getting the hang of the tune. And then one by Lesley Garret with that fine body of men, the Grimethorpe Colliery Band. Both are well worth a listen even if you’ve got the song down.
The latter clip give a tantalizing taste of what performing with Lesley might be like on May 31st. Amazing to think I get to share a stage with a soprano of such standing. Watching the clip helps to calm the nerves no end….
