Choral Cacophony Podcast #14 Merry Christmas Mantra

Notre Dame Cathedral, Ottawa
Pierre has written a brand new arrangement of one of the most popular carols on the planet. 

Carol of the Bells has always been a most requested Christmas carol at our concerts and our director/composer wanted to bring a fresh modern ring to this old Belle.

In this episode of our Podcast, Pierre demonstrates the attention to detail our song rehearsals require to get that spot on timing and tuning of the chorus. 

You can use this one next time you meditate... on what to get everyone for Christmas.

Chapter 1 - Working the "Merry Christmas" chorus to Pierre's NEW arrangement of Carol of the Bells - only sopranos.
Chapter 2 - Now with sopranos and altos.
Chapter 3 - With sopranos, altos and tenors - getting interesting!
Chapter 4 - Now everyone  - Hi basses!
Chapter 5 - And now you see where it goes -- just a taste of the whole song...
