Vacancies for female singers

It’s been a while (infact so long, l couldn’t remember the log in for this site. )   The choir are still going but we are desperately in need of another soprano or an alto. I think we must be the only choir which has lots of men, particularly basses and not enough women. If you are a good singer, l’m afraid it is essential that you read music to a reasonable ability. You don’t need to be able to read square notation – l can teach you that. We sing a range of ‘traditional’ liturgical music. A typical Sunday is a four part motet (usually unaccompanied Renaissance) – this Sunday we sang Palestrina’s Alma Redemptoris Mater, and all the propers either in English or Latin depending on practice time, a couple of hymns and the Ordinary in Latin, usually Mass VIII or Mass XVII. We practice from 9.30am every Sunday and sing at the 10.30am Mass. When we can, we fit in an evening practice but those are few and far between at the moment due to my work commitments. So if you want to sing the traditional music of the Mass please email me on stmarymagdalenchoir@googlemail.com or put a comment in the box.
