St. Paul’s rehersal…

I really like the church at Armitage Bridge for rehearsals. Must be an acoustic thing. Interesting, I thought we sounded much better in the brief period when the lights went out. That must be a “not being able to see the tenors” thing. Hehehehehe!

We really tucked into “Consider Yourself,” “Food” and “Who Will Buy” last night. A trio of really great to sing  songs that just has to go down well with the audience. Actually, adding the smaller members of the wonderful Barnsley Youth Choir to it and its a done deal. Its going to be a big night.

Nice idea, though I know made in jest, that the choir dresses as the Dickensian characters from Oliver! for the show. Looking round at my fellow baritones, I realised it would be more of an issue of dressing down than dressing up for our end of the stage…

Still can’t “Mmmm” and “Ah” properly for “Going Home.” Just can’t get the timing right. Probably time to stop looking at the dots on that one and trust my ears, as they say.

    Hi Paul, regarding your comments on “not being able to see the Tenors” we are still a force to be reckoned with in any shade of light, but all things considered the Bari’s are not too bad a section 😜😈 Ha ha ha

  2. I should have known any poke at the tenors would provoke a response! Quite right too.
    Not sure about the baritones actually, when the lights came back on my hip flask was empty and I’m sat there holding an empty packet of polos….
