I’ve just started learning Bob Chilcott’s A Little Jazz Mass which I’ll be singing as a (new) member of Eltham Choral Society in October, unless they find out first that I can’t sing and I’m kicked out. I’m going to have to learn more than an inch at a time though – more like a mile at a time – as it’s being performed in a month’s time. I’ll just have to sing very fast.
Here’s a bunch of lovely lively ladies in green performing the piece. It’s the Hiramatsu Mixed Choir, though it doesn’t look very mixed to me – I’m pretty certain there are only girls in those floaty dresses.
I love the Sanctus.
Also on the programme is John Rutter’s Psalmfest. More on that soon.
