Lenten Challenge

Our choir master has laid us a bit of a Lenten Challenge – and it doesn’t involve giving anything up…

Last week he told us that he has put down Crucifixus by Antonio Lotti as our main anthem for the service on Good Friday, and handed out the music. The anthem is in eight parts, and to be honest when we sight read it last week about the only thing that was right was the first and last notes – everything else was a bit of a mess.

This week we listened to a recording of the anthem on “Images of Christâ€?, and managed to get the first page or so vaguely right. From next week we’re having sectional rehearsals to sort out the rest…

So fingers crossed we can pull it all together over the next few weeks, and if you want to hear how it should sound, check out the recording on iTunes
