CC Podcast S. 2 #5a - Working out Laud

Typical rehearsal with our director leading from the centre of our circle.
In this weeks Choral Cacophony Podcast episode (Second of two parts) the Stairwell Carollers work on a piece called Resonet in laudibus.  It's a latin Sacred composition from the 14th century for SATB choir, transcribed by our director, Pierre Massie.
Chapter 1 - Pierre continues rehearsing the song with the choir, working on timing, singing the soprano and alto parts himself.

Chapter 2 - Some reminders of latin pronunciation and then we practice!

Chapter 3 - Pierre snaps his fingers as signal for timing. Silliness ensues sometimes - it is rehearsal after all! And a final try.
