Kesgrave Singers – Christmas 2021

It does seem rather early to be thinking about this, but time will quickly pass!

The plan for our Christmas repertoire is to provide a mix between our regular items and seasonal items. We will also provide some form of sing-a-long for Carols and well known pieces.

We may not be using all of these items – please check the current repertoire on the home page.

Angel’s Carol (Rutter)

Soprano

Alto

Believe (Polar Express)

Soprano 2

Do you hear what I hear?

The old music needs to be removed and replaced with a version to be handed out at rehearsal. This also applies to the TB line, which has changed since our earlier rehearsal.

The correct music has boxed text with ‘Kesgrave Singers 2021’ at the top right of the page.

O Holy Night

The old music needs to be removed and replaced with a version to be handed out at rehearsal. This also applies to the TB line, which has changed since our earlier rehearsal.

There are now only TWO lines of music, but importantly there is now an S1 / S2 division.

The Alto’s and men (TB) sing the lower of the two lines marked A/TB
