I went to choir last night. It was the first night of the new stuff towards the March/April concert. It was a good night and we had a good selection of new songs to learn.

We started and warmed up with 'With a voice of singing' by Martin Shaw

This is a four part concert choir from somewhere singing it.

We Then did 'Love Changes Everything' from Aspects of Love which was actually very easy and lovely to sing. We got the four part harmonies the first time of singing! It was nice to sing something that we could just get right and enjoy!

(This version is VERY, VERY, slow, and gets slower! but I've picked it as it's the same arrangement as we are doing!)

Then we learned 'Zadok the priest' by Handel - It is the 60th anniversary of the coronation this year so lots of choirs up and down the country are learning this song for the Jubilee.

Wiki - Zadok the Priest is a coronation anthem composed by George Frideric Handel using texts from the King James Bible. It is one of the four Coronation Anthems that Handel composed for the coronation of George II of Great Britain in 1727, and has been sung at every subsequent British coronation service. It is traditionally performed during the sovereign's anointing.

Lastly we started the first page or so of 'Waltzing Matilda'! Strange choice I thought but it was sounding harmonious by the time we left!

Again I've managed to find a group singing the same arrangement as ours!
