Time to catch our breath

After a very busy Autumn term so far, the choir has a bit of a break from gigging coming up, and we’re using that time to work on a few new songs to add to our repertoire. Our performance with Roy Bailey a couple of weeks ago was brilliant fun and a great success. We’re not used to singing on a pub stage with mics, but we rose to the challenge! Roy was excellent, and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

MIDI files

Jane and I spent a couple of hours wrestling with software this morning, and have managed to create MIDI files for some of the songs we sing at Red Leicester – see the music page for full details. For every song, we created a file with all of the parts playing together, in addition to separate files for each part. We hope that these might come in useful for members of the choir who would like to learn their part. Of course, it also provides non-members with the opportunity to hear some of what we sing (the tunes at least – we don’t quite have the manpower to record singing voices for all of these parts!). We’re working on adding more files to the page, and are hoping to upload pdf files of the scores for these songs too.
