The plan for Monday 16th:
- Shepherds loud their praises singing

- Christmas Bells are ringing – opening, Ding Dong, I Heard the Bells
(Ding Dong and I heard the bells have been added to the other sections already recorded)
- WSS – Maria
- WSS – America

This is fun – if you can learn it all from memory we could do something like this……. (don’t worry, only joking)
- Angels’ Carol p. 6 onwards
- The Lord is my shepherd
- Run, shepherds
- Possibly Shepherds’ Farewell
At the rehearsal I mentioned that we are going to sing a couple of items in the concert in which the audience can participate. One suggestion is While shepherds watched to the tune of On Ilkley Moor…. (I don’t actually have a copy yet, so if anyone has it that would be helpful). Any other suggestions as to what the audience might enjoy are very welcome – it doesn’t necessarily have to be on the sheep/shepherds theme.
If anyone has any thoughts on how we might present our concert of 2 very different elements (WSS/Christmas with the shepherds), either with title, presentation, promotion, dress, food etc., please do come forward – all ideas very welcome.
Another good rehearsal last night – well done everyone.
