Learn This Term’s Music

Practice Makes Perfect

This term we are singing Britten’s St Nicolas Cantata.  This may be familiar to some of you but for many of  the Choir this will be both unfamiliar and very different to what we  have sung over the last year. Our second piece is the familiar and much loved Bach Cantata BWV140 – Sleepers Awake.

Practice is what makes the difference; knowing the notes (not like Eric Morcombe – all the right notes and in the right order) gives rise to confidence; we will then delight our audience and ourselves when we perform.   Even if you are a brilliant sight reader these practice parts are still very useful if there is a tricky bit which somehow eludes you at on a Thursday night!

So once again we are putting in a link to Choralia where you will find your own part and a variety of ways to practice.

You can listen to someone else do the hard work with these versions which we found on YouTube.
