We are starting with these pieces that we have played relatively recently, so that we can bring them up to concert standard:
• April is in my mistress’ face v2 NEW Jan 2022: Please print and bring with you. Updated 19 Jan: The only changes are the tie and slur in the descant part in bars 14-15 (can be added manually or reprinted)
• Hushabye Mountain (a good challenge – especially the tenor part) NEW, but dated Oct 20: Please print and bring with you. Tenor players will need to practice beforehand!
NEW for May 2022: David Wright has kindly arranged a 7 part version of the "Whitlock Folk Tunes": Please print ready for 3rd May, and read what David has said about the piece below: Full Score (6 pages) Descant & Treble (2 pages) Tenor & Bass (2 pages) Great Bass (1 page) David says: "Percy Whitlock's Folk Tune is from his Five Short Pieces for Organ. The lovely flowing melody covers a wide range so I've shared it between the Descants and Trebles, and occasionally between the tenors and basses. The organ pedal part is a solo effort for Jonathan's Contrabass. A couple of meandering interludes between the verses add some interest. I hope you all enjoy it!" Rik adds: I found it useful to listen to the original Organ piece - for example this onethough be aware that we would probably play slightly faster as organs have larger lungs than we have!
Looking even further ahead, we have loads more familiar and possible new music to choose from. Some is for the whole group, some for smaller ensembles, some accessible to all of us, and some that will challenge our more advanced players.
