Choral Cacophony Podcast #2 Fine-Tuning the Chorus

Pierre, Stairwell Carollers director
Choral Cacophony Podcast was recorded at the dress rehearsal for our spring concert at St. Barnabas, June 18th 2011.

Our director fine tunes the chorus
"A Little Pretty Bonny Lass" is a sprightly madrigal with tricky timing.  Pierre's attention to detail -- rehearse, rehearse, rehearse!

Rehearsal at St Barnabas
Here's our live concert performance on YouTube.

The Stairwell Carollers, from Ottawa, Canada, sing A Little Pretty Bonny Lass by John Farmer (c.1570 -- c.1601), a composer of the English Madrigal School.
