2019 Repertoire

Dear all,

Happy New Year! Looking forward to another fabulous year of singing together 🙂

I have uploaded 6 pieces (3 of which have been done before, hopefully you can save on some paper) into the Repertoire section of the website.

Sign in and print them off for rehearsal tomorrow. Perhaps even check in again tomorrow, before rehearsal, in case there are any extra additions.

Thanks,
Astrid

Freedom rehearsal parts

Hi all,

Here they are! Couple of iffy rhythms on my part, but the song is very repetitive, so hopefully if I stuff one up along the way, you will hear it correctly 100 other times.

Of note:

Tenors, I have sung your part largely as the top line of the ‘baritone’ part of the piece. You’re sharing a line with the basses for most of the song. However you share the alto line in the Verses. 

Altos, I have given the tenors the bottom alto line in the verses. However some altos will need to sing the lower harmony in the chorus, in the “Freedom” section.

Freedom – all parts

Freedom – Soprano

Freedom – Alto

Freedom – Tenor

Freedom – Bass

 

FREEDOM FOV sheet music

 

Enjoy!
