2017 Big Sing Date Claimer
Just a reminder that the BIG SING in Brisbane is 2 weekends away on Sunday 29th Oct. so do come along to the rehearsal tonight. Next Tuesday we will have a short extra ‘do it ourselves’ practice @deMolay starting at 7pm.
Note there is a fifth Tuesday this month which will give us an additional rehearsal before a Jazz club gig on Friday 10th Nov 8pm.
Our next rehearsal 7pm on 19th Sep De Molay House – for a do it ourselves rehearsal as Astrid is away in NZ. Bring a plate and stay for a cuppa.
For everyone keen to practice with others come along on Sunday 18th June & 25th June from 3.30 pm – corner of Herbert and Kitchener Streets. Everyone welcome to join in making our own music. We are aiming for a No Words practice!!
See you there. Marion.
Please find below some practice parts for I Wish I Knew How It Would Feel To Be Free. Listen, learn, learn to love! These recordings came with the purchase of the song. I believe simply clicking on a link should start it downloading – if not, try right-clicking on the link, and then selecting the ‘save target as’ option.
I wish I knew (Soprano learning track)
I wish I knew (Alto learning track)
I wish I knew (Tenor learning track)
I wish I knew (Bass learning track)
Here also is some help for Father Father. I don’t quite have the time to sing through each part, but I hope to do this some time soon. In the meantime, here are the notes. Not particularly beautiful, but hopefully can help to learn some pitches between rehearsals.
Father Father alto
Father Father bass
Father Father sop
Father Father tenor
Finally, here are some old rehearsal tracks I first recorded when we learned Sing Me To Heaven a few years ago. I cannot attest to the current quality, but it hopefully will help new folks with their parts!
Sing Me to Heaven – Alto
Sing Me to Heaven – Bass
Sing Me to Heaven – Soprano
Sing Me to Heaven – Tenor
Here are two pieces from our workshop last weekend. Please print them out and bring them to our next rehearsal. Also, the remaining 3 pieces will be scanned and posted before our next rehearsal – if you could make time to check the website on Tuesday before rehearsal, you should have 5 new pieces 🙂
Don’t forget that there are also the other pieces up on the website if you are yet to print a copy (Sing Me To Heaven, Father Father, Mother Earth, Heyr Himna Smidur)
All new music from the workshop is now available under the Repertoire tab. Use your Login to access it. cheers, Marion

As promised – the parts for I Shall Not Walk Alone are below.
I recorded them all with the other parts very softly in the background so you can get used to finding your parts while hearing the other voices. There is also a “soloists” mp3 – if you end up with a solo you can practice along with this file.
N.B. Tenors – you will notice that I changed a few notes of yours at bars 45-47. We shall discuss this at our rehearsal tomorrow.
I Shall Not Walk Alone Soloists
I Shall Not Walk Alone Soprano
I Shall Not Walk Alone Alto
I Shall Not Walk Alone Tenor
I Shall Not Walk Alone Bass
