Conductor Notes

Mondays 5th, 12th, 19th March

Well done for extremely impressive work this week – it was a real challenge to be scrambled up. We worked on Tavener (please check which choir you have been allocated if you weren’t there), MacMillan and the ladies’ Schubert.

We now have three rehearsals before the recording and we have covered all the repertoire for the CD. Please come to each of these rehearsals very confident of all the notes.

Monday 5th March

Mens’ Schubert, Bruckner, Mozart and Barber

Monday 12th March

Mendelssohn, Franck, Faure, Tavener, Lotti

Monday 19th March

MacMillan, Rachmaninov, Todd, Victoria, Whitacre
