Sing, sing, sing

Hello, we’ve got a busy week of singing and then more singing to banish those winter blues. We’ll be performing at Friday’s charity concert in aid of “Faith in Action.” It promises to be a wonderful evening with some superb musicians and singers taking part. We are on in the first half singing “Over my Head” followed by “Paddy on the Railway” and then in the second half we’ll perform “My Life is in Your Hands” and “Hallelujah” as our finale. We’ll be going through everything thoroughly at choir practice on Thursday evening at 20.15 – our last practice before Friday’s concert. I hope to see as many of you as possible there. On Friday we’ll meet at 18.45 at the church for a warm-up and short run-through before the start of the concert at 19.30. Ladies please wear black top and trousers/skirt with optional red accessories. Gentlemen black suit, white shirt and black tie or bow tie please?
To round off the busy weekend we’re singing at 9.30 mass on Sunday 19th (3rd Sunday of 2014 already!) We’ll be singing the same set of hymns/pieces as we did last month with the clapping Gloria and the Halle Halle added on.

Give me joy in my heart (190)
Gloria, gloria in excelsis deo (408 clapping)
Halle halle halle (932 gospel acclamation)
Praise the Lord, oh my soul (offertory)
My Life is in your Hands (communion hymn)
Over my head (second collection/ extra communion hymn)
Walk in the Light (914 recessional)

Looking forward to hearing you all singing again – you’re sounding great!
