Choir Diary as at 23/11/21

Rehearsals

As usual our rehearsal on Thursday 25th November will be in the Church Hall, Sacred Heart Roman Catholic Church.  Unfortunately we have been informed that parking will not be available at the Church that evening so please allow plenty of time to find alternative parking in the town. After 6pm you can park on single yellow lines. 

 

The Church Hall was not previously available on 2nd December however it is now available so Adrian would like to have a rehearsal that evening. 

 

This means there are just 4 more rehearsals before the concert day. It is important that everyone should try to attend all these rehearsals (subject to our normal Covid protocols) and to do some homework. The programme for the concert will be:

  • Corelli Christmas Concerto (strings) - 

  • Choir motets - Hassler Dixit Maria; VictoriaAve Maria; Josquin Desprez Ave Maria; Sweelinck Hodie Christus Natus Est 

  • Buxtehude Magnficat (organ)

  • Buxtehude Magnficat (choir) 

  • Bach Magnificat 

 

Concert Day

On 23rd December, our concert day, there will be a rehearsal in St Peters starting at around 2,15pm. Please plan to arrive at 2pm so we can be ready to sing. The concert will be at 7.30pm that evening. 

New singers will need to have a CCC black folder.  The cost is £7.  Please see Chris Sanders.

Jeremy Biddle has kindly agreed to set up the Church for our rehearsal and Concert. He will need some help with setting up. Volunteers please. We shall also need some help with front of house. Ticket sellers, programme sellers etc. Volunteers please. 

 

Marie Brewer is  assuming that everyone who has been attending rehearsals will be singing in the concert. Please let her know if you are not. Given the structure of St Peter’s it will be very hard to socially distance players and singers. We shall try to allow as much space as possible. If you are uncomfortable with this and prefer not to sing then please let Marie know.
