Brighton Festival Chorus is always looking for new members. If you are
a singer, you are very welcome to join us for our Open Rehearsal.
We will be rehearsing Walton’s Belshazzar’s Feast. Scores will be
available to borrow on the evening, and you can join us afterwards
for a glass of wine and maybe even a short audition if you wish.
We look forward to welcoming you!
For those of you who missed the last session, here’s our latest Name That Tune! No cheating, no playing… find the rhythm, find some notes & intervals, and see what you come up with. Answers on the 14th.
Sorry for the late posting of parts, everybody. I seem to have fallen a bit behind this past week. Perhaps I was thinking that since everyone was singing this so well already that the study parts were irrelevant. But at long last, here they are.
I’ve heard complaints from a couple of youse that the sound isn’t loud enough on the parts audio playback. I won’t get into trying to diagnose all computer issues here, but please do make sure that the Volume slider on the right side of the Audio Player is pulled all the way to the right. This ensures it’s at maximum volume from the source.
One other thing to note is that this is a piece with numerous bars of rests. I’ve done my best (to varying degrees of success) to put a click in to guide you to the beat. Remember this is in 6/8 time, so each ‘click’ you hear is one with 6 clicks in a bar. Do drop me a line if there is any confusion at all.
We began this at our last session and while it’s mostly pretty easy to read right off, here are the files so everyone can have a bit of a practice and those who missed out on our session at Jasper Lodge (Election Night at LVW!) can play catch up.
Oh, and apologies for another obscure American reference, but I couldn’t help myself. Hearing Don Knotts sing this song cheers me no end.
