Virtual Evensong

RSCM St Albans, Hertford and Bedford Area sang a Virtual Evensong on 20th July for which I was the accompanist. I recorded the organ accompaniment in St Nicholas Church, Harpenden and then over 40 singers sang along at home with headphones whilst recording their own voices. Marie Price conducted. Here is the result: Brewer in D Nunc Dimittis

Lockdown Life

It’s been an extraordinary time. Recording accompanying organ parts with nothing to accompany. Second-guessing rallentandi etc. And Directing my choirs, virtually. A steep learning curve.

BUT. All is not lost. I have witnessed our singers sight-reading and confidence improve over the lock away weeks. We can come back invigorated and more self-sufficient.

We pray to thee, O vaccine, for a swift result!

Coventry Cathedral

Coventry North Side

A terrific weekend just passed accompanying Priory Voices singing in Coventry Cathedral. A loud organ when unleashed: and full of plenty of character, too.
