…but just in case you did need a prod, we are going to be recording some segments that we hope may be used on a future Meet My Choir, a regular segment of Radio 3’s The Choir programme.
Sara Mohr-Pietsch, presenter of The Choir, came along to the March PDtP and was kind enough to suggest that we submit a recording and some info for her programme.
OK, so we are technically not a choir, but the programme is about celebrating singing in all its forms and so our unusual event might be of interest to the British public.
Once again, there is no guarantee that we will make it on to the programme but it would be nice to give it a try; I am really hoping for a nice, big sound for a brief recording so please do come and bring your singing pals with you!

as heard on BBC Radio 3’s The Choir & Organ:
At Polyphony Down the Pub and Counterpint, we pride ourselves on meeting the demands of the most sophisticated palettes.
On our wine list you’ll often find fine vintages from the likes of Victoria, Palestrina & Byrd, on the rotating craft beer menu there may well be fresh, hoppy numbers from la Rue, Zielinski or Casulana, and then of course there’s the chance of a wee dram of the hard stuff: Gesualdo.
Like just about everyone else in the world we’re on a break until things get back to normal but rest assured that as soon as it’s safe to do so, we’ll be back in the pub, boozing & singing!
