Rehearsal 15th May

Hi All,

Just a reminder that we will be rehearsing the final movement of the Handel Dixit Dominus in the last part of tomorrow’s rehearsal, so you will need to bring your score.  (If you’re not singing on Saturday you will be able to leave early tomorrow night!)

Please also listen to the full piece, either using the John Fletcher note-bashing site or a recording, with the score in front of you a couple of times between now and Saturday afternoon!

Many thanks

Rosemary

Homework 9th May

Dear All

Rehearsal tapes – please start listening to these:

[Edit: I’m sending you links Jess has found for recordings of all of the repertoire for the July concert. ]

All of the pieces except for the Muhly are also on the John Fletcher site: http://www.johnfletchermusic.org/

Please refresh your memory of the Handel by listening to it with the score, ideally ahead of Tuesday evening when Jess will run through the final movement in the last part of the rehearsal.  (Those of you who are not singing in this concert will be free to leave at this point).  Please don’t forget your Handel score on Tuesday!

Best wishes

Rosemary
