Fire and Brimstone

On one of Britain's hottest days the Quire sweltered their way through numerous tunes. A depleted  tenor and soprano section, two in each, a strong alto and bass section had us all working hard to either be loud or quiet.

Tea and cake were very welcome.

No band this week as many were away.

Hail the Month of Maying

Two Quire members got married at Shrewsbury in the Unitarian Church.

They kindly invited all of the quire and asked for songs to be sung.

Never turning down a chance to sing, especially with refreshments added the quire turned up in force and sung as suggested by Charles Wesley (mentioned in a previous post),

Congratulations to the happy couple from the quire members.

The happy duet Soprano and Tenor.

followed by the rest of the quire looking forward to a resounding performance.

Lustily with Good Courage

At todays rehearsal The Quire sang the way that John Wesley suggested "sing lustily and with good courage" and they sure did.

So much so there was little time to eat all of the cake.

Melodious Spring

The Sopranos

The first rehearsal of Spring had the quire learning more new tunes and singing old favourites with a renewed spring in their step.

Cake and a cupa? Of course.

Joys and sorrows

Almost a full turnout of Quire members and all in good voice. It was fantastic to see the return of a bass member after fighting a long term illness and also welcome a new member in the Alto section.

The quire opened by singing beautifully the wonderful Gibraltar in memory of  a member who had recently passed away.

In good voice the songs for the May wedding were tackled before the customary cake and a cupa.

The Village Band gets better and better, The symphony in Old Foster sounded amazing, well done The Village Band.

No Procrastinating

The Quire's music director wasted no time and plunged the quire into 3 new songs, steep learning curve but wonderful tunes which all the members enjoyed. A great vocal and mental workout.

Old favourites with enthusiastic playing of the symphonies by the band were also part of todays rehearsal.

A new band tune also.  Busy day.

There was also no procrastinating when it came to cupa time. Cake went down well but that's nothing new.
