MF as of 8 May 8 May 2009
Did you really want Techno Tomkins? Well, you got it.
See, See the Shepherd’s Queen
I made a whole new folder for the practice files I created for this piece. You’ll find:
- A score in the correct key for MF
- Practice files for every voice part
- A fun techno version
All Creatures Now
I also re-formatted All Creatures (Bennet) to our key, and its in the usual Practice Files place.
- New score for MF
- Would you like me to create practice files for this?
Programme order to come in the next post . . .

Chanel Arts Centre Gig 27 March 2009
Waaaaahhoooooo finally got hold of Donald of Chanel Arts/Motueka Music Group.
Yes he agrees that would be too much to have two early music things on one weekend. (There’s a Baroque trio on Sat 15 May)
Might we think that even the weekend after is too much too?
But anyway – the place is available to us for the three weekends after that:
29/30/31 May (Queens)
19/20/21 June (possible but getting close to concerts for the Festival of Lights)
He basically said that we can do whatever we want re times/concert. Charge is $80 for evening concert which would include going in for rehearsals too. He doesn’t recommend afternoon concerts. 7.30pm is the norm and he recommends HUGE local advertising efforts as people often say they didn’t know about stuff….
The Music Group don’t advertise concerts other than their own on their mailings so we would have to organise that ourselves. He suggests flyers at the previous concerts…
Trish’s thoughts : I’m busy on afternoon of 23rd & I can’t do the weekend of 30/31 May at all. I would be happy to create and post out advertising if everyone helps with creating the mailing list of friends & contacts.
Matona Mia Cara explained 16 March 2009
The Kings Singers are very good for this kinda interpretation stuff, aren’t they?
Hillary and Andrew have suggested we add “Matona Mia Cara” to our repertoire. Have a listen to the Kings’ Singers version:
and if you believe Choral Public Domain, the meaning can be quite rude indeed!
