The works we are singing from January 2018 are: Bob Chilcott “A Little Jazz Mass” (for the first four rehearsals only ready for our February social) and then Rachmaninov “All Night Vigil (Vespers)” .
We will be singing the Rachmaninov Vespers in Russian! As a first on this page, we are including a brief pronunciation guide!
(If you are singing in the Concert for Peace event on 1 March, the YouTube link for practicing the choral part for Beethoven’s 9th Symphony can be found here. The choral part begins after about five & half minutes into the video. There is also a Cyberbass practice link. The work will be sung in German. If you need any help with German pronunciation then you can find it here).
