we do sing sacred songs we're not connected to any church. We sing for enjoyment
- and learn songs from all kinds of traditions, countries, cultures and
centuries - from Gregorian chant to Van Morrison and lots in between.
of us have never sung before but always wanted to, others sang in choirs at
school or in church or have strong musical roots - good news is that whatever
our abilities we still manage to make a great sound singing together!
group are warm and informal, and we enjoy the session socially as well as
getting together to sing. It's a great way to meet new friends and if you're new
to area a good way to find an easy way 'in' to the local community.
songs can be a bit daunting at first - we learn a lot by ear - and I remember
thinking when I first joined that I would NEVER be able to learn the tunes or
get my head round the part I was being taught - but before you know
what's going on - you can.
got about 40 members now - with around 5 or 6 men, which give the bass
section a really great tone.
you're not sure where your voice fits musically that's not a problem either -
often choir members move between groups for different songs, either because they
feel their voice is more suited to singing, say the tenor part for one number or
maybe the alto for another, or sometimes just because they prefer one part's
tune to another!
