A couple of weeks back we were all on course, with a carefully put together schedule to release the set-list in manageable chunks, thereby continuing to whet your collective appetite and get you all even more excited about the PDtP Birthday celebrations.
Then an impromptu trip to Ireland got in the way, with its distractions of the Mayo coastline, the Holy Mountain, medieval monasteries, County Kerry and beer, and the plan quickly fell apart.
Not to worry, though; the entire set-list for the 26th is now ready and there’s still plenty of time to digest it before the big night. (The epic but tricky BWV 437 is back in so why not have a couple of practice run-throughs with this video?)
I hope you’ll agree that the works I’ve chosen are some of the very best numbers that we have sung over the past 12 months and there should be something in there to suit all tastes, just as long as those tastes are centred around 16th century choral music and Lutheran chorales.
One thing I do need to point out is that we still have a very peculiar distribution of voices signed up for the night, with roughly the same number of altos as all other voices combined.
It would therefore by great if any sopranos, tenors & basses who are definitely coming could sign up so that the nights leading up to the 26th become slightly less sleepless for me.
Also, as a Plan B, if any altos who are comfortable up at the higher end of the register could be prepared to help out the sopranos then you will be showered with praise and glory on the night, as indeed you are on most nights anyway.

Hi Kevin, I’ve tried several times to sign up, but get presented with last month’s form. Anyway I shall be there singing tenor. Tony

Hi Tony. Odd that you can’t sign up – it may be something to do with your browser cache – but very glad great to hear you’ll be there (it wouldn’t be the same without you or David!)
I’d like to come along on the 26th to see how you do things, but try though I might I can’t see any indication of the name & address of the pub wherein PDP takes place. Could you please advise?
Many thanks, John
