Our Music

We recorded some of our repertoire on 23rd July 2016 at  Hemel Hempstead Methodist Church. This recently built venue has a lovely bright acoustic which comes over in the recordings.  Music director Rufus Frowde, Accompanist Judi Kelly, Sound Recording by Gareth Williams Audio

You can listen to the music and see the slideshow on this page.  If you click on the title on the video, you will go to YouTube where you can also follow the words.

ONE, TWO, THREE – Henry Purcell

This is a complex round; quite a challenge to accomplish! 

 

THE LITTLE BIRCH TREE – BERYOZKA

The essence of Russia!

 

FOLLOW THE HERON – Karine Polwart

A lilting Scottish folksong

 

The next two carols were captured live at our December 2017 Christmas Concert at St Mary’s Church in old Hemel Hempstead High Street. This is a 12th Century Church, again with a lovely acoustic character. No lyrics are given for these two; but we all know them anyway!
