A little rusty on choral singing?

Date: 07 January 2014
Are you a choir member who sometimes struggles to get to grips with your part in time for the Sunday service?

For seasoned choristers, singing the voice part accurately becomes second nature, but others often need more time to learn their part than is available at choir practice. Now help may be at hand.

Nick Axten from All Saints’, Ockham choir had the idea of finding a company which will provide a set of practice discs or downloads with the part on so that individuals can learn their part in their own time at home.

Nick has approached choral music specialists Choraline, who produce discs, tapes and online recordings for choral works, to see if they might be interested in creating soprano, alto, tenor and bass (SATB) tone parts for hymns. Their response has been positive, providing there is sufficient demand to make it worthwhile.

They are looking for a minimum initial run of 50 copies or downloads. The likely cost will become clear once the level of take up is known, but hopefully there will be sufficient support from churches within the diocese and beyond to make it viable.

If the idea appeals to you please call Nick Axten at 01483 284746 or email nickaxten@outlook.com.

Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your minds, so that you may discern what is the will of God—what is good and acceptable and perfect.
