I've been working with my choir since September on the songs for our annual Holiday concert. When we started in September, it was a little weird to be singing Christmas Carols and such, especially when the weather was still so warm. We've been practicing phrases such as
Jing, Jing, Jing, Jing-a-ling-a-ling. and jing-a-ling-ling-a-ring-a-jing-jing
Try saying them fast and on key. Every week, we would work in just those parts of the songs that had those phrases in them. But it paid off. I was able to sing most of that song without looking at my music. I could watch the director, which he wanted!
Here are a couple of songs, thanks to Jakes in the audience recording. Sorry for the shak-y camera action.
The Virgin Mary Had A Baby Boy
And Another One.....
Dong Dong Merrily on High
written for 4-hand piano
Our accompanists are FABULOUS!
