A very good rehearsal again this week. Glorious music in both works which we are approaching with typical Amici enthusiasm and expertise. Kerry will take the choruses forward over the next two weeks whilst I am absent. Additionally (if time) we will embark on no VII Selig sind die Toten and Since by Man came death, Messiah no 46 .
I look forward to taking up the baton again on Feb 21 with a reminder that there is NO rehearsal one Feb 14 (Ash Wednesday).
If you are reading this message and have not been able to be at a rehearsal for a variety of reasons, please will you ensure that you revise independently the choruses that we have worked on to date:
- no I Selig sind
- no IV Wie lieblich sind deine Wohnungen
- no 28 He Trusted in God
- no 12 For unto us a child is born
The following fifteen choruses will be rehearsed for performance on December 9th 2018. Without exception they are demanding and need to be very well known to be able to deliver a memorable performance
- Part 1 Nos 4, 7, 9, 12, 17, 21
- Part 2 Nos 22, 24, 25, 26, 28, 33, 44
- Part 3 Nos 46, 53
I attach projected costs for both concerts to be given in Collyer Fergusson based on 400 ticket sales (max) at either £15 for £20. This may be useful in our deliberations with regard to fund raising.
Finally confirmation of the remaining spring time rehearsal dates.
- January 31
- February 7, 21, 28 (note not 14 Feb)
- March 7, 14, 21
- April 11, 18
All best wishes
