As our three Christmas events happen this December the Solent Male Voice Choir are already thinking about what we will be singing in 2024.
We do have one firm booking to sing at a St David’s Day Dinner, so we will, no doubt, be revising and adding to our Welsh repertoire. Singing in Welsh, whilst difficult for Englishmen, adds a certain something to the music. It makes the hairs on your neck stand up.
We will, no doubt, keep one or two items from last years repertoire but our Musical Director, Huw Thomas, tells us he is planning to add some classical music, such as the Libera me Domine from Faure’s Requiem. In complete contrast we may also be trying Jeff Lynne’s Mr Blue Sky.
One thing is certain, the arrangements Huw creates for the Solent Male Voice Choir will be challenging but great fun.
