Those of our followers who have heard us sing know that we sing four part harmony. Mostly.
That is first tenor, second tenor, first bass, and second bass.
When we sing and when we rehearse, we are arranged by the director in groups as above. Usually.
However, when the mood takes him, our director likes to move us about so that we are not next to members of our own group, but well mixed up and listening to a neighbour who is not singing the same notes as we are. All good stuff and intended to get us to make sure we know our own line well.
Last week the mood really did take him, and we had a rather different approach. I’m not sure of the best way to describe it, but if you think of Les Dawson at the piano combined with ‘The words of one song to the music of another’ as in ‘I’m Sorry I Haven’t a Clue’ then you will get the idea!
A wonderful rendition on the piano by Graham (some members thought they recognised a tune) and we battled our way though ‘Anthem’ from Chess.
I think we won.
