Rehearsals for our Spring Term concert – Brahms Requiem – are on Tuesdays from 2 January to 19 March at 8pm at Walthamstow Hall Junior School Hall in Bradbourne Park Road TN13 3LD with our performance at Pamoja Concert Hall, Sevenoaks on Saturday 23 March 2024 at 7.30.
We are singing in German and using the Peters Edition Score.
Our Librarian, Brian Shirreff, has sourced hire copies which are available before the start of rehearsals for a hire fee of £2 – please try and have the correct change if you can.
We recommend the following rehearsal aids :
ChordPerfect : Click Here
Select your voice-part and click through each section of the work with your part sung by a professional singer and “played up” in your right ear with the other voices and accompaniment “knocked-back” in your left ear. Like standing next to the best person in your section! An additional benefit is that you will absorb the German pronunciation as a by-product of hearing the singer performing your voice-part.
Cyberbass : Click Here
If you prefer the electronic organ sound then Cyberbass is a good rehearsal aid.
