BV spring term 2021 Session 1

Dear Singers

Apologies for the delay in getting this to you.

Anyway we have a fun-filled evening planned for you and I can’t wait to get us all back together.

We will meet at the normal time (7.30pm) but with a new meeting link that has been mailed to you.

Here it is again just in case:

CHEESE SONG

Central to the evening will be learning a song from a show by a friend of mine Ben Glasstone.

He wrote the celebrated children’s show the Mouse Queen which briefly played on Broadway opposite the Lion King.

One of the stand out numbers from the show has the refrain:

“In troubled times like these,

People turn to ….CHEESE” which seemed quite appropriate.

It is a work of genius so I have done an arrangement of the song for us SATB which will raise our spirits as we focus on fermented dairy products for a while.

Here is a link to the stage recording from the show so you can get a feel.

The actual score and words are found here in the Choirs Dropbox folder:
