Choir 2 please note -- the entire song underlies your parts at a low-level, so you can hear what's going on during your rests. When these tracks start, the volume level will be LOW until you come in a little later. Please don't adjust your volume until your part has started.
Sunday, December 9, 2018 Second Sunday in Advent
Introit: "Prepare Ye the Way of the Lord" with congregation
No choir rehearsal
NEW to singing in a choir and/or reading music?
Here is a YouTube video introduction to understanding the basics of reading notes and rhythm which you may find helpful. Created by Tim Hansen, I think it's a great explanation for a beginner about the nuts and bolts of music. Enjoy!
Everything you wanted to know about music theory - ONLINE and FREE at sonicfit.com
Try to work through these lessons and exercises a little each week and it will make a big difference to your choir experience!
Remember, becoming a good sight reader of music requires a little practice every day!
