List for 20 November

It’s coming to that point where we need to be covering as much as we can in our rehearsals.  On Monday I would like to focus on West Side Story and the Christmas Bells medley, but hopefully also some other bits – particularly My Lord has come and Shepherds’ Farewell.

I feel pretty


One hand, one heart 

Christmas Bells – opening 
Ding dong merrily on high
I heard the bells
Carol of the bells

My Lord has come
Shepherds’ farewell

CHALLENGE:  as I have mentioned, one or two singers have asked if we could try to sing a little more from memory, so if at all possible, it would be very dramatic if we could close our books at the bottom of p. 25 in West Side Story, and sing from there to the end without music (There’s a place for us……).  I am certainly not going to stop anyone from singing if they can’t manage it, but as many as possible would be brilliant.  If we can aim to sing as much as possible of America from memory that would also add to the dramatic effect – but again, please don’t get into a panic if you really feel it’s impossible for you.

Words for all songs, copied from Internet so not guaranteed

Please do spread the word about our concert – we have a really varied and exciting programme which should make an enjoyable evening for our audience – AND there’s the buffet!

Hoping to see as many of you as possible on Monday, starting to sing at 7.30,
