1st Messiah Rehearsal 16/17 Season

New folks present this time. A Baroque Master Series presented by the SSO this year with three concerts of combinations of Handel, Bach and or Mozart. Around 33 for the chorus. So far mixed chorus, ie not singing as sections.

Duff started with a wonderful feat of memory by going round the circle and introducing all of the chorus. It was quite impressive. Following that we worked on the following 8 pieces.

And the glory

Worthy is the lamb

Surely he hath borne our griefs

And with his stripes we are healed

All we like sheep have gone astray

And he shall purify

His yoke is easy

Yes that was only 7. I had duelling rehearsals so I don’t know what else was missed.

Duff also let us know what the cuts were for the concert. Next update.
