Socially we can all meet in the holidays at Goulds Garden Centre in the summer holidays which is fab. And friendly. Our official choir social is Thursday 20 July and more details will follow.
And we started with our Latin flavoured round, Dona Nobis Pacem. We all sang it together to revise is from last week, then split into our three parts. Well I say we. I was away last week so sat open-mouthed pretending I was in dead posh Inverness Choral Societly again, where you have auditions and have to sit in parts. Mike listened too, and gave everyone a huge clap when they had completed 2 complete rounds a Capella and beautifully. Wow. Just wow.
Then straight into California Dreamin' on such a summers day as this. Ed had to help us with the melody at the end of the verses. Thanks Ed.
God Only Knows how we got this good, but we have and that's that. Hands up Oo-ers, said Ed? And Who are Do-doos? Show of hands, he continued. Oo-ers got 8 out of 10. There were only two Do-doos, but they were marvellous. Finally Ba-ba-bahs got 7 out of ten and might have been a bit jealous of the do-doos getting 10 out of ten. I could hardly blog for the tears in my eyes.
Then it was stand and perform time while the going was good and oooohs, doos, and baaaahs were all scoring 9!
But to gain full marks will be to dream The Impossible Dream but here at DFS we always do. Earnestly and sincerely. Remember this one starts steady and softly and builds. Revisit the art of shifting gears which I blogged about originally some years ago.
Soolaimon brought forth another wow. Meridy wanted some long notes in the chorus so we did some, before standing to perform again.
A revisit song, Story Of A Heart I remember singing at the Wey Bay Church many ancient moons ago. We had worked hard and it was time for our reward and Rolling In The Deep with er, strong lyrics. That one slipped by the censor. Just another passing ship.
I love you DFS keep doing what you do and see you next week xxxx
