A-May-Sing… June Tunes!

Ok the first of the new set are up on the website if you’ve not got round to sorting Dropbox yet.
The ones in red are red-y to go… geddit? geddit???!!

Here’s the link…. TAKE ME TO THE JUNE TUNES!!!

Alfie- Choir
Can You Feel the Love- Choir
Castle on a Cloud- Choir
Copa Cobana- Choir
Day by Day- Choir
Do You Hear the People Sing- Choir
Down in the River- Choir
Hearts were full of spring- Reflect
Hey Big Spender- Girls
How Can I Keep From Singing- Choir
I’ll fly away- Choir
Keep Holding On- Choir
Oh What A Beautiful Morning- Men’s
On My Own- Choir
Raindrops Keep Falling- Men
So Long, Farewell- Choir
The Hills are Alive (quiet)- Reflect
The Rhythm of Life- Choir
Till there was you- Reflect
Walking On Sunshine- Choir

You won’t need them all so check if it’s a men’s or a women’s song, and also if it is Reflect you won’t need it.
Remember you should be able to hear your part in your right ear and all the others in the left. If you can’t try switching headphones- my Apple ones seem to cancel all the balance stuff out for some random reason.

As always, shout if you get stuck.

Hi all, ‘Sway’, the first of the new tracks for A-May-Sing for Victory, is up.
**Plus, now, Chattanooga, Lullaby and The Way You Look.
***** Also Apple Tree and Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy are up, and I’ve also put Beguine up, but only for the A, T and B parts… the lovely Ms Hepke is going to record the top A flats for me next week so I don’t make the sopranos ears bleed…. the rest of you can manage without the top line for now! Oh also Beguine has higher and lower alto parts, perhaps go for what you did with Spotless Rose? x
********Let’s Face the Music now up too. And that’s your lot for this weekend… I’ll do Sandman next weekend, and Dover when I’ve written it!!

There’s a full set list below but most of them aren’t up yet. I’ll update you as they appear.

Begin the Beguine (not sopranos yet)
Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy
Chattanooga Choo Choo
Don’t Sit Under the Apple Tree
Let’s Face the Music and Dance
Lullaby of Broadway
Mr Sandman
Pack Up Your Troubles/ Tipperary/ Run Rabbit
Sway
The Way You Look Tonight
We’ll Meet Again/ Now is the Hour
White Cliffs of Dover/ Keep the Home Fires

The ones in grey aren’t up, the ones in bold are. It’s a start!!

Remember, you need to get the right one for your part. Then your part will be in one ear, headphone, speaker, and the others will all be in the other one. So you can learn your part without hearing the others, then gradually introduce the whole sound back in.

Ask if you get stuck. There’s no such thing as a stupid question 🙂
And let me know if there’s anything wrong when you listen to them.

Have fun!

***note…. for some reason at the moment I can’t get the tracks to mix as they usually do. If you have already downloaded Sweet Chiming Christmas Bells and Simply Having, you will notice all parts are coming out of both sides, left and right. I’m working on it… sorry, everyone… the old stuff should still be ok.

October 5th…. Christmas tracks are up… click HERE

July 5th… Here’s the complete set list for Sunshine! on 17th September. They aren’t all on the practise site yet, I will be updating them over the next week or so, but just so you have an idea of what we’re doing.

March 30th… Download the final set for A-May-Sing

Newly added- Grandfather, Amazing & Joyful Joyful, Don’t Worry, The Water is Wide.

You should be able to find everything there now. Remember to download ‘Amazing & Joyful Joyful‘ not ‘Joyful Joyful‘ as the latter is the old one and doesn’t have Amazing Grace or the key change or the ending on it.

Here’ s the complete set list for the choir, in alphabetical order, so you can check you have everything

Amazing/ Joyful Joyful
Dancing in the Street (Oh Happy Day isn’t on there)
Dashing Away
Don’t Worry
Fix You
Grandfather’s Clock
Mr Blue Sky
Put a Little Love in Your Heart
Rainbow/ Umbrella
Scarborough Fair
The Water is Wide
To Make You Feel My Love

Have fun!!! xxx

March 17th… I’ve remixed ‘Fix You’ to try to set it so you can actually hear the vocals. If you’ve downloaded it already, delete the one you have and download it again. x

March 2nd… ‘Put a Little Love’ and ‘Fix You’ are up now too. Same link below. xxx

*edit two… it’s been one of those days… I believe ‘To Make You Feel’ wasn’t working with ipods/ phones/ tunes/ spy… I’ve fixed it now, just try downloading it again. Shout if you get stuck. xxx

*edit… OH ALL RIGHT… you’ve twisted my blinkin’ arm… I’ve put Dashing up as well. And before you ask, no, I haven’t done the slowy down and speedy up bits nor any dynamics, this is just notes notes notes. And if it sounds rubbish it’s cos I’m ILL (not because it’s really really hard, honestly!!) and if you think I’m doing Grandfather tonight too you’ve got Another Think Coming. 🙂

February 2011
Never mind the fact that the weather is rainy, or we’re all a bit unwell, or that I’ve had to cancel choir (*sob)…

Have ‘To Make You Feel’ to cheer you up!
Click on the link below!!

I Want To Make You Feel My Love!!!

“But, Sarah!” I hear you cry. “Didn’t we change some of the chords in ‘To Make You Feel’- specifically the tenor line in places?”

Why, yes we did. Fortunately I made those changes as I was recording it two weeks ago. UN-fortunately I changed all of the verses, when in reality it should only have been verses one and two. So, gentlemen… in places your part is wrong wrong wrong. Very sorry and all that.

“But Sarah!” you continue. “How do I know which tracks I’m supposed to be downloading from the site… there must be at least sixty three!”

Ah, well now. The only new ones up there at the moment are Joyful and To Make You Feel. You won’t find Dashing, Grandfather, Put a Little or Don’t Worry. This would be because I haven’t recorded them yet. As far as the old ones are concerned… you will find a list of which ones you need here. Unfortunately not all of those are recorded either. I will do it soon, I promise. No, really.

“But Sarah!” you cry… but your voice echoes hollowly around the room as Sarah has done a runner….

January 2011

Hi all!!
Joyful Joyful is now up on the website!

CLICK HERE TO GO TO THE TRACKS WOO!!

I’ve moved everything round a bit to save me having to start from scratch with each concert. All the tracks that we’ve ever done are in one folder for your section now, so you’ll have to scroll down to find the current ones.
Joyful Joyful is the only new one at the moment; I will keep you posted as others go up.
Remember, your part is in one ear, all the rest in the other ear. As always, shout if you get stuck! Don’t struggle!

Much love x

December 2010

Here’s a link to the Programme PDF

October 2010-

Here’s the link to the Christmas practise tracks…

Hi Aimee and Everyone Else Click On Me and I’ll Take You To the Tracks!

For the technologically literate amongst you, it would appear you now have the option to download the whole folder as a zip file… that’s got to be quicker I’d have thought. Mind you I don’t know if that option is only available to me as the owner… oh well, let me know if it works! Or doesn’t!! xxx

July 2010-

Hello all you lovely lovely people!

Here’s the link you’re looking for…..

Take Me To The Tracks!!!

When you get there, you’re looking for ReSound Sunshine! All the new tracks are in there, in the folder with your section name on it. Sopranos, you’ll see some of the tracks have first and second soprano- that’s the two groups you were in- first is the higher of the two. Altos, you’ll see in Mr Blue Sky there’s also first and second alto… for now, download second alto (there’s very little difference between the two!)

Please PLEASE shout if you get stuck.

March 2010

If you need instructions as to how to download them, they’re lower down on this page. If you’re still stuck, call me. I mean it. Or else. 🙂 x

Soprano Tracks

Alto Tracks

Tenor Tracks

Bass Tracks

Instructions on how to download the practise songs from Wednesday…

Step One
Click on this link. It will open in another window so that you can jump back to these instructions should you need to.

Link to the Sky Drive

Step Two

Click on the folder ‘ReSound Practise’, as indicated by the red arrow below.

Picture1

Step Three

Click on the first file ‘Dream a Little Dream’

Picture2

Step Four

Select ‘Download’

Picture3

Step Five

A pop up window will appear, asking you what you wish to do with the file. Choose ‘Save’

Picture4

Step Six

Decide where you wish to save the file, and click ‘Save’

Picture5

Step Seven

When the file has downloaded, it will tell you it has finished, then ask if you would like to open the folder or the file. Choose ‘Close’ at this point, as you have others to download.

Picture6

Step Eight

You will then be returned to the ‘Download’ page. Select the next file along. Make sure the new file is actually selected- the title will have changed, and the number will have increased, as shown by the arrows. Continue to download in the same way as you did for the previous files. You may wish to skip over files that are not relevent to you- the file name will specify if it for a particular group or person.

Picture7

Step Nine

The last file in the folder is a text file called ‘read me first’. It has some information about the recordings, and the track list. When you’ve finished downloading this read me file, choose ‘open folder’ and the folder with all your downloads in will appear.

Picture8

Step Ten

You can now do what you like with them. Add them to your media player, burn your own cd, add them to your mp3 player, whatever you wish. If I find anyone selling them on the car booty there’ll be trouble.

Shout if you get stuck- you know where I am.

Have fun, lovely peeps! x

      Hi Aimee,
      I’ve changed the link above… near the top of the page, can you see it now? That should take you to the ReSound Christmas 2010 site, where you should be able to see the soprano folder- that’s the one you want. Next to each of the tracks you have the option to download. If you’re still stuck, get your mum to ring me… I’m more than happy to help but I’m going to be away from my computer now so I won’t see if you write anything else here. Ring if there’s anything at all you want to ask 🙂 xxx
