(With apologies to Peter, Paul & Mary:) Where have all the tenors gone?

I mean, we had a shed-load of them at last Monday’s PDtP, crooning their way through the evening and re-composing Byrd as they went. (Hey, I happen to think that what you guys sang was more interesting than what Byrd actually wrote.)

But as I type this, not a single tenor has signed up to next Wednesday’s Counterpint in the Cafe. Which means if we can’t persuade a couple of shy tenors to come forward, everyone there will have to put up with my screeching through the high parts. And no one wants that.

So come on – grab your nearest tenor, frog-march them to a computer and get them to register via this link.

(There are still a couple of spaces left for sopranos, altos & bases too.)

In other news, on Tuesday July 11th our friends in the City Chamber Choir are putting on a winning programme of choral music by Lauridsen, Finzi, McDowall, Geer, Elgar, Vaughan Williams & Tippett; details here.

I am a classical music enthusiast and a lover of choral music in particular. I run the Polyphony Down the Pub social/singing night, probably the most thrilling singing-Renaissance-motets-in-the-backroom-of-a-pub experience you could ever hope to have.
