I'm back from holiday and unfortunately a bit behind, which is why I'm posting about what happened last week today, just before tonight's rehearsal.
We ran Faure's Requiem for the first time last week, only missing out the soloist parts. The way we tend to rehearse means that we're always dotting around the pieces, and if you haven't sung it before and don't know the piece very well, it can be difficult to imagine how one piece is going to join up to the next one. Thankfully though, from my point of view it went quite well and sounded pretty good.
Hopefully I'll be able to say the same about Messiah tonight. For various reasons, I've missed a couple of Messiah rehearsals and it feels like forever since we had a sing though it. Bit scary considering the concert is only a couple of weeks away.
Speaking of which, if you'd like tickets for the Messiah concert, go to the Chorale website, or contact any member of the Chorale.
*Everyone, or in this case every piece.
