Here we almost go!

Hallo Revellers all!

Well we now have  two live gigs coming up before Christmas ……at the SSGB and at the BHI .   So with that in mind here is the choral news…..

You will notice that I have now posted all the learning files and music for these concerts in the BV dropbox folder (including the correct version of Deck the Hall, the Fieldmouse Carol and In the Bleak midwinter).

There is also a  final list of the songs we will sing for each of the two concerts.

You can listen to all these new tracks and find the repertoire lists here:

Full URL is:

The older material from previous terms can also be found in the BV folder  “Archive for past songs”  The full URL is : 

Please can you all spend a little while singing along to all the repertoire for these concerts: now is the time!

Open the repertoire file appropriate for each concert, print it out if you need to and use it as the navigator of your practice sessions along with your word sheets.

Be methodical ideally (follow the Julie Andrews method…”let’s start at the very beginning”!)

Jon Conway will be bringing some of his versions of carols that many of you know to this weeks rehearsal which will give us a good selection of truly Christmassy material to perform!

Finally if anyone would like to do a reading during the BHI concert (a voice with good projection required too!) then do let me know as it would be nice to have some text in among the carols. I reckon we have room for two of these moments.

Thank you


Tomorrow evening with Fran

Greetings fellow BV’ers!

hope that your half term was just what you needed!

i am sorry to be missing you all tomorrow evening but am leaving you in the capable hands of Fran Bolton who will be bringing two fun new pieces that we can hopefully carry forward into our Christmas repertoire.

She and I have caught up today I will be kept up to speed for next week and able to keep the tunes she brings along alive going forward.

Do please bring you folders anyway as she will bring you words etc. to put in there.

See you all next week with pleasure!


Stop Press!

Dear BV’ers,

I would also like to run through “Carol of the Bells” tomorrow night so could you please also bring your words for this song by going back to last year’s Autumn folder.

many thanks
