Possibly one of the top Male Voice Choirs in West Yorkshire, England. Website: www.honleymvc.co.uk

Practice makes perfect

We are coming up to the Choir’s busiest time of the year with lots of new music to learn. Both our MD and Choir Chairman have been banging on about learning the words, quite rightly I might add (creep).    So it was with great interest I received via email a short poem, from one of our newest members, who wishes to remain anonymous:

Roger & Steve say we need the words

No doubt of that I’m sure there right

It isn’t really good enough

To be only ‘alright on the night’

We read them at dawn

We read them at dusk

They might stick better

If we use them to busk

Some choir’s make CD’s

Some choristers record

Some use a quill

And some just get bored

Now our M.D. reminds us

That we must not quess

And that diligent homework

Is the key to success

New technology is needed here

Miniature computers in our ear?

But whatever we do to help us sing

Let’s hope just rewards our efforts will bring.     ANON.
