I will sing unto the Lord as long as I live: I will sing praise to my God while I have my being.—Psalm 104:33
Greetings fellow Christanons. Grace, mercy, and peace be upon you from our Lord Jesus Christ.
I was tasked by our dear B.O. Ezekiel to organize a /christian/ choir, where board members sing various Christian hymns and songs together. I envision this working as follows:
1. We select a piece that people want to sing.
2. Brothers and sisters, hopefully, who want to sing contact me.*
3. I find/arrange parts for the selected piece and give volunteers their parts.**
4. Volunteers practice and record their parts and send them to me.
5. I compile the recordings and post the final product to a youtube channel and on this board.
As our first song, Ezekiel recommended "Non Nobis Domine" to the setting in the 1989 Henry V film (embedded). We could do this or something else if there are other suggestions in this thread (I may make a poll if people have lots of ideas). One advantage of this particular piece is if there are not enough people comfortable singing parts, I can just ask volunteers to sing in unison matching the video.
As an amateur musician, I have sung in choirs, led musical groups, and recorded music before; however, I have not had to deal with compiling recordings from people whose ability I have no prior knowledge of, so this will be a learning experience for me. I ask your patience if I mess up or have to change something halfway through.
So, in this thread, I would like people who are interested in singing to let me know, and also to decide on what song we shall sing first. Any other suggestions or comments on the project as a whole are welcome. I will use the following email to coordinate volunteers: choirmaster -at- protonmail -dot- com
Thank you for your interest and participation.
