Excellent humour and superb new tune.
Most jolly rehearsal last night, at least in my section of the baritones. A little “Goonish” humor never goes amiss on the back row.
Good to hear that thoughts are leaning towards a new recording by the choir. I can’t help thinking that with the choir clearly riding a very positive vibe, that is would be a good time to set those particular wheels in motion.
New music last night. A very interesting and atmospheric piece from Mascagni’s one act opera, “Cavalleria Rusticana.” The Chorus and Drinking Song, no less. Wonderful. Looking forward to being a part of that in no small measure.
Speed Your Journey opened up considerably to me last night and has become my favorite of the new songs. Sounds great belted out in the shower and the greenhouse which is the hallmark of a superior song in my humble opinion. There is a smashing rendition on You Tube by the lad of Gresley MVC which is worth a view.
Its good getting to know one of the new chaps from Skelmanthorpe. I hadn’t appreciated they have a MVC with a history as long as Honley and a membership to match. Maybe there IS life on other planets too. Cool!
A new poster distributed for the next recruitment night. A new design too. Far more eye-catching…
“What happened to Kitchener?” Inquired M’lady.
“This is him on his night off?” I chanced. Unconvincingly, apparently.
