Dear WCS

Thank you for YET ANOTHER excellent rehearsal last night - I really am enjoying these sessions, and I hope you are too. For those not able to attend, we rehearsed:

Mozart - Domine Jesu Christe, Hostias & Quam Olim Abrahae, Dies Irae
Andrew Lloyd Webber - Memory and Pie Jesu

Two notes about "Memory": bar 20 and 40, Altos please sing the last note of each bar with the sopranos; and bar 24 please replace "sputters" with "gutters"

You might like to listen to the original here: 

I find this very nostalgic, taking me back to being a small child listening in our dining room while my mother did things around the house...

Now, important information for next week: as Jude mentioned last night, there will be a coffin in the church on Tuesday evening, ahead of the funeral on Wednesday. While it might be nice to sing to Roy, we have decided to move the rehearsal into the church hall for one week only. So, when you arrive, please turn left rather than right!

Looking forward to seeing you all next week,
