Is there anything better….
than a rehearsal night where we get to sing through great songs like Amazing Grace and The Lost Chord? I don’t think there is. Learning new material is a pleasure but being able to throw your voice and heart at those two classics that we sing so well is pretty much the last word on being in the choir.
“That’s made my night, that as.” Somebody said. I had no choice but to agree. Delighted these will feature in the April concert.
And, as the MD himself noted, Electricity sounded “the best we’ve ever sung it.” A performance, I’m certain, bolstered by the a fore mentioned standards. We could probably put dignity and passion in to the theme from The Muppet Show after knocking those two out to a packed town hall.
An interesting thought but possible another one of my “not to approach the choir with” ideas. Like us doing a medley of Bond themes… Well, we’re already in dinner jackets was my thinking. Common sense prevailed. I’ll be serving my apprenticeship, a decade or two, before I starting making “artistic” suggestions out loud.
I’m told that’s a very wise decision with suggestions of that quality.
