Rehearsal parts – Tomorrow shall be my dancing day

My recreations of the individual parts for this are here.  Let me know if you find mistakes. Also, if anyone finds a suitable YouTube recording then send me the link and I’ll add it so it plays via the email the website sends out when I add a post, or on the website page itself.

It doesn’t seem possible to reply to emails like this so for now use as reply address.  I’ve raised this with the WordPress people.

Tomorrow shall be my dancing day

The Crown of Roses

Hello all, return of the Orwell Singers blog posts.

This is a taster.  To help learn new music I recreate it in a programme that then allows individual parts to be emphasised, as below with the louder part shaded red. Click the white triangle bottom left to play.

If this is useful let me know.






Rehearsal 28 May

Dear everyone,
Not many rehearsals left now, so I will be trying to cover as much as we can each week, while still concentrating on those which need most work.

We DO have a rehearsal this Monday:

For the beauty of the Earth 

For the Beauty of the Earth

It was a lover and his lasse

O magnum mysterium

Seiber Folksong no.3 

The Old Woman

We beseech thee

Turn Back, O Man

Turn Back o Man

Just a reminder that most of you liked the idea of singing “For the Fallen” from memory – so let’s give it a go.  It would definitely have much greater impact if you weren’t all holding copies  (please don’t panic if you know you won’t be able to – I won’t stop anyone from singing!!)

BUSKING!  Please do feel free to offer something for our busking part of the evening.  It will be very informal, possibly outside.  It can be very short, sung, played.  It doesn’t just have to be Orwell Singers – if you have friends who would like the chance to perform in an informal setting do ask them.  Could be serious, lighthearted or plain silly!!!

See you on Monday,



Summer Concert

Dear everyone,
As promised,  here is the poster for our summer concert.  Please do send it on to friends and family.  If you have friends who wouldn’t normally be tempted by the Orwell Singers you might be able to entice them with the jazz and a picnic!
