Sing and Rule the World!

Another great evening rehearsal with two new choir members joining us, Anja and Ulrika (welcome ladies, it was very good to have you with us.)  The wine flowed, the nibbles were nibbled and after a short but energetic warm-up, we went over the “Sing” parts learnt the previous week.  I was very happy to hear that the soprano 2 voices remembered and held onto their lines really well after just learning their notes a week ago, well done! A fantastic effort from everyone and we sung through the piece several times with the use of backing tracks and our piano.  There were a couple of tiny sections that the men needed to learn in this piece and they did a sterling job as ever, with great concentration (a great bonus to any choir.)  We then moved on to a sing-through of “Rule the World” which is the next piece we’ll be learning for our summer fair performance.  Most were familiar with the melody and we had great fun singing through it in unison with male voices shining in verses for this particular number.  It’s going to sound great once we learn it in parts with all the harmonies.  We’re taking a break for half-term week – next evening rehearsal will be on 6th June.  Enjoy the break and keep singing everyone! It’s good for body and soul.
