    We have just ordered a new piece that we’ll sing for Palm Sunday.  The name of it is Coronation.  Here is the link that you can use to go ahead and listen and learn the character and style of this song.  I recommend that you just listen for a while and enjoy the rich chords and text.  The music should arrive next week and we will begin work on it March 12.

    Update (3/29/17): Sopranos, we’re going to remove the high A from the end (very last note) in order to have more strength on that chord.  All sopranos will sing the F# which will make the chord much more sturdy.

    I am very much looking forward to our first rehearsal this Lord’s Day. Below, you’ll find links for some of the music we’ll work on at our first rehearsal. Listen to it as much as possible and arrive at rehearsal with the advantage of being familiar with the music.
