Sorting the music for the Sops, altos, tenors and basses.
I´ve been singing again with the Devizes Chamber Choir, and inadvertently offered to be the choir´s librarian! Not an easy job! This spring we will sing Vivaldi´s "Gloria" Nielsen´s "Springtime in Funen" and "Be Still, My Soul" from "Finlandia" by Sibelius. I have sung the "Gloria" several times, but not the Nielsen or the Sibelius, although I know the tune very well. I am looking forward to some good singing in the New Year.
Three scores for each of the 50 members of the choir.
Each singer will need three scores, so I spent an afternoon numbering each copy from 1 to 50, and then bundled them into groups of three. There is always a little chaos at the beginning of each new term, when everyone has to collect their music, and even more when it all has to be collected, and returned to the music library. Happy Days!
