Last one for now, see here http://www.orwellsingers.co.uk/the-mermaid/
Find the parts and videos here http://www.orwellsingers.co.uk/god-be-in-my-head/
Rehearsal parts are on the page you can get to my clicking the menu link. They are my transcriptions of the original scores but some had already been done on the Musescore site and may just have needed some tweaking.
As well as playing them on this website you should be able to download the parts to your computer or phone.
Looks a bit different as I learn how to use the new update for WordPress (blah, blah, techie stuff, yawn)
Go to this page http://www.orwellsingers.co.uk/adiemus/
Second of the day, hope they’re useful.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org as reply address. I’ve raised this with the WordPress people.
Your part needs to be done again as I’ve entered the wrong one. Later.
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.
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
It was a lover and his lasse
O magnum mysterium
Seiber Folksong no.3
We beseech thee
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,
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!
