HOMEWORK:   Here are some website links to help you with this season's music.  These music links will help your practice and make it much more enjoyable for you. 

Also, if you look in the DOCUMENT store, you will find a guide to the words, language and pronunciation that Jonathan has sent out, so please familiarise yourself with this.

Also here are a couple of links to the Lindburg own choice piece.  To listen to the Ensemble parts, please follow this link to Two For The Price of One


Hi folks. I have listed our Leith Hill music for January and where I have found a decent YouTube link I have added it, so that you can listen and get familiar with the pieces. There are other places on the magic web where you can find free music aids or downloads. CYBERBASS is free, as is LearnChoralMusic, and both have good repertoire.  Choral Line is very good for learning individual parts but you do need to pay.So please look around and let me know if you find some gems.

Carmina Burana (Schott edition) by Carl Orff. You will also find a file giving pronunciation details in our Document store.
