Resources for members: Repertoire for Summer 2024


Here are some suggestions of songs we might like to explore during the summer term 2024.  They are of differing styles and difficulties, and there should be something for everyone!  Here you will find copies of music, and where possible, links to audio tracks and rehearsal aids.  Enjoy!

The Banks of Ellen

Written by John Reay, and arranged for Wigton Choral Society by Ian Wrght in 2012, this song is all aout our local river and its surroundings.

The Goslings

A humorous song by Frederick Bridge (1844-1924).  We last sang this song as part of our 'Birdsong' programme in 2018.

The Goslings Sheet Music

The Lord is my Shepherd

Howard Goodall's theme from 'The Vicar of Dibley', rearranged by Goodall for SATB choir in 2014.  This arrangement was first performed at St.James' Palace by the Choir of Christ Church Cathedral Oxford, in the presence of Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip.  This copy is for perusal only - a printed licensed copy will be available for you at choir.
