Sending you a Christmas version of
Leonard Cohen's Hallelujah.
Hope you enjoy it.
This is a beautiful video that Tiphaine found for us. When I first watched it, I thought the singers must be sisters. The Irish have a theory that only family members can harmonize perfectly and this video just might be an illustration in point; that is, unless they aren't sisters - in which case, never mind what I think ;-D. Anyway, it is lovely. Enjoy everybuggy! And thank you Tiphaine!
This might help you get a sense of how this piece can sound. So much fun if we can access some inner swing! Thanks, Renelle, for the suggestion :-D
Below is a rendition of "His Yoke Is Easy" from the Messiah. Feel free to listen to the video to better understand the quick rhythms within the piece!
Below is a beautiful video shared with us by one of our members. It is a wonderful message from the esteemed composer John Rutter reflecting on the importance of choir music in our society. Take a look:
"And musical excellence is, of course, at the heart of it. But, even if a choir is not the greatest in the world, the fact that they are meeting together has a social value. It has a communal value. And I always say that a church or a school without a choir is like a body without a soul. We have to have a soul in our lives. And everybody tells me, who has sung in a choir, that they feel better for doing it. That whatever the cares of the day, if they maybe meet after a long day’s school or work, that somehow you leave your troubles at the door. And when you’re sitting there, making music for a couple hours at the end of the day, that’s the only thing that matters at that moment. And you walk away refreshed. You walk away renewed. And that’s a value that goes just beyond the music itself."
