Music for this Weekend
New on the members section of the website is an updated April 2021 music list including for both the Noon Service (Upper Voices) and Choral Evensong (Trebles) this week.
All the sheet music is now also available on the site so you can rehearse at home - take a look!
Need a music track to sing along to? There is also a link which will take you to a Spotify playlist of all the music we are rehearsing at the moment (as well as a few new pieces in the future that will need some work).
So Lower Voices although we don't have a rehearsal this week, you can be practising your favourite sea shanty in the safety of your own home!
This weekend Noon Service will be truly historic - Debut of Upper Voices choir, Matthew is directing, we shall be testing the new live-streaming system from church onto the St Thomas Mellor YouTube Channel and it will be Nathan's first complete service on the organ. His voluntary will be Bach's Toccata and Fugue in D minor - I know it will be fantastic as I have heard him practising.
For those that want to come to the Noon service or Choral Evensong sung by the trebles, you can just turn up before the service. You will be very welcome - congregations so far have been in the single figures so I doubt we shall reach the congregation capacity of 28. We can create an overspill area in the Lady Chapel if necessary.
I am looking forward to this weekend - everything is the new usual timings:
Friday 6.30pm Trebles until 7.30pm
Friday 7.45pm Upper Voices Choir until 8.45pm
Sunday Noon service (Upper Voices) - please turn up by 11.45am, pick up music, robe and go to choir stalls via Tower door and take your place.
Sunday Easter Choral Evensong (Trebles) - please turn up for rehearsal by 4.45pm - bring packed tea, face mask, pencil and water bottle. Service is 6.30-7.30pm.
