Weekly Summaries

19th September

Messiah No22 Note the uneven rhythm on p91 and don't smooth out. Don't swoop up to jumps or slide down - just hit the right note!

Altos, Tenors and Basses - straight quavers at Bar15

Cheat with breath on long notes if needed - just don't look like it

Separate 'that taketh' to have tt

No24 - some scrunchy close harmony so learn and hold own line

Breathe at bottom of first page and shorten last note of sorrows

No21 - Keep light in volume and bounce along.

Tenors note rests on p86

All to put slight break before run in each case eg sops Bar 2 after first note

Christmas in Blue - Angels and Shepherds Note that, as written, Sops and Altos do verse 1 on page 1 and Tenors and Basses verse 2.

Rhythm is tricky on p17

Learn own part well so as to hold line against everyone else.

Most difficult for the two inner parts - Altos and Tenors.

Every Stone - nothing to note except that to say that we ran through it

Messiah - Hallelujah Chorus

Avoid pitfall on last page - note the two rests at the end!

p174 - shorten last note on Christ to a crotchet

Paid particular attention to Tenors and Altos on p178

Carol Booklet - The Virgin Mary. There will be audience participation for 1st verse.

As, Ts and Bs - note rest on Bar 2 of p 3

Accompaniment will be strings and piano except for last three chords which are unaccompanied. Les will hold last chord longer if we hit the right combination of notes!

The Hour of Midnight - choruses louder than verses

Next Week - 26 Sept

We have now run through all the music apart from two in 100 Carols and will start proper work on the Messiah - And the Glory chorus and Christmas in Blue - Angels and Shepherds.



12th September


Doh Re Mi


Carol Booklet


At the hour of midnight 

            Rhythm – watch out for for the longer notes

            Read all the words to see how they fit in.


Sleep my little Jesus



O my loveliest one

            Page 2 Bar 14 – Tenors – words should be the same as other parts.



We’ll speak very softly

            Page 2 – time changes

            Altos Bar 17 “bling” should be a quaver and rest as – Sops


White Christmas

Bar 52 – Tenors – should be dotted as other parts. Watch how all the parts fit together and the timing.





No 12 – For unto us– no runs  no  runto us! , Prepare for Wonderful – don’t be late. Page 58 – God is the most important word – save volume for it.

Keep runs in time.


No 4 – And the glory of the Lord.


Christmas in Blue


 Page 69 – No Small Wonder

Christmas Music Booklet



Les welcomed everyone and explained that we would be starting with the round Doh Re Mi. We learnt the first part of this. Les said that he would be preparing CDs – Mp3’s (which will accessible from the website) for note learning. The first three weeks will be for going through all the music and then it will be done in more detail. 


We then went through the following:




No 4 – And the Glory of the Lord


 Letter A – together, Also Sops on the high notes – relax.


No 7 – And he shall Purify


Lots of runs in this piece – emphasis on the first of the 4 each time and build up.


No 17 – Glory to God

The Rhythm is easy to get caught out on.
