Great leap forward

The singers had already warmed up their voices singing at 9.30 mass so (just for today) we dispensed with the warm-up. Straight into the run of hymns we’ll be singing at mass next Sunday and then some more work on Laudate Dominum. Dropped one of the solo verses as I felt the while thing was a tad long. After singing through this beautiful ostinato chorale with psalm verses over the top, we worked on nailing those entries and finally it all came together beautifully (gave me goose bumps to hear it sounding so good.) It’s now ready to unleash on the congregation next Sunday! Rounded off rehearsal with a spirited, uplifting rendition of “Walk in the Light” complete with a clapping chorus at the end (it sounded very gospel choir and was tremendous fun.) Get ready for some clapping next Sunday folks!
