The next meeting of RSCM Scottish Voices will be this coming Saturday, 17th April 2010, at Holy Trinity Episcopal Church, 1 Dundonald Road, Kilmarnock KA1 1EQ and Choral Evensong will take place at 4pm, lasting around an hour.
The music list, hot off the press this afternoon, is:
Introit: This Joyful Eastertide (Anon – arranged Wood)
Responses: William Smith of Durham
Psalm: 89 vv1-19
Canticles: Healey Willan in E flat
Anthem: Sing Joyfully (William Byrd)
I’ve found the following on YouTube, which may be of some use for giving the choir an idea of what some of the music sounds like, as a rehearsal aid. You have to go to 4minutes 8seconds on the Westminster Abbey one to get to the Smith, and it’s only the first part (the Preces) they sing. Part of the second bit (the Responses) is on the next video down, and I couldn’t find the rest of it!
Oh, and just for Ruth, Sing Joyfully is performed by a New Zealand choir!
