We’re back to our twice-weekly rehearsals after a break in mid-January which everyone really needed as it had been an exceedingly busy Christmas and New Year. It was lovely to share some drinks, nibbles, chit-chat and of course singing at the Lady Chapel on Thursday evening as we look forward to new performances throughout the rest of the year (Friday 17th October being quite a big one as we have a set to perform at the Epsom Civic Society Anniversary Dinner.) Sunday we were back in the Westlake Room in our usual slot after 9.30 mass where we rehearsed and fine-tuned some of the harmonies in hymns that we’ll be singing at next week’s Family Mass. You’ve been putting a lot of work into those harmony lines and the practice really paid off as the singing sounded great. This is what we’ll be singing (in this order) at 9.30 mass on 16th March.
1. Immortal Invisible
2. Psalm 32 “Lord, let your Mercy Be Upon Us” Phil will be cantor and we’ll practise the refrain on Thursday evening and also on Sunday morning during warm-up.
3. Here I am Lord (offertory)
4. Make me a Channel of Your Peace (communion)
5. Dona Nobis Pacem (communion and 2nd collection if any.)
6. Shine, Jesus Shine (recessional)
I look forward to seeing you on Thursday evening and hope you’ve enjoyed the sunshine this weekend!
