A West Gallery workshop and concert called "Murdered Anthems & Improper Psalms" will be held at Warburton (near Lymm Cheshire) next Saturday. All are welcome to come and sing music from eighteenth century English parish churches and nonconformist chapels including melancholic metrical psalms, exuberant fuguing tunes and Primitive Methodist rants, and Sheffield pub carols etc.
A chance for those who enjoy harmony singing, and those who want to try it, to join in and raise the roof.

I'll be there too - just bought my tickets online. Thanks for the reminder Mr Arcane Lag. Are you sure "exuberant fuguing" is legal?

Matthew

John
The website says that tickets are available on the door for most events, so you should be ok. Otherwise we could stand outside the door and give them a few "Murdered shanties and Improper sea songs"

Matthew
Good on you Matthew,look forward to seeing you. I don't know of anything much more exuberant than "Hail Smiling Morn" and I think it's one that's on the list.

Yvonne says that she's comming but only to the concert - unless you can persuade her otherwise.

They'd like you to buy tickets in advance so to know how many sets of music to print

I knew it all along - they are really the Grace Darling Sinners!

I love 'Hail Smiling Morn' - it has got such gorgeous bass runs in it!

"Darkness flies away!"

Hi Alan

I would love to come to the workshop and concert. The chap I work for would also love to do the workshop and concert and Mike will perhaps do the concert later. Can all pay on the door?

Thanks

Yvonne x

Hello Yvonne

Yes you can pay at the door and I've checked the website and there are still some tickets left. Howard (I think he was Guest abive)likes to know how many are coming so he doesn't have to print too much music. I'll let him know you (and anyone else who posts to this thread) are comming.

Alan

What a lovely afternoon of music it was.

Though it did feel a bit odd singing 'While Shepperd's Watched' as the hot sun cracked the paving slabs outside.

Thank you to The Grace Darling Singers.

Glad you could come Yvonne, it was good to see so many friends there.

If we're asked back next year we'll be doing American music from the same period and tapping into the shape note tradition.

See you on Thursday at Lymm Folk Club.

Alan

I really enjoyed the workshop and concert - the old church of St Werburgh's in Warburton made a lovely setting for the songs. I very much liked the settings of 'Dying Christian/Vital Spark' and 'The Christian's Goodnight'- but maybe that just shows what morbid tastes I've got!

Thanks to Sally Drage and all the Grace Darling Singers for an excellent afternoon.

Matthew

But you'd drink to anything John!

We were very pleased at the turnout. We had to send for extra chairs, the queued for half a mile - oops, sorry I slipped into the wrong song.
There's been a lot of positive feedback, I've had quite a few PMs. Glad so many came and enjoyed it.
