All My Memories of Love

Scheduled for Nov 19, 2017.

Anna Akhmatova Words by Anna Akhmatova
Translation by Mark Belletini
Plainsong Melody
Singing the Living Tradition #336
Unison

All my memories of love hang upon high stars.
All the souls I’ve lost to tears now the autumn jars;
and the air around me here thickens with their song;
sing again their nameless tunes, sing again, and strong.

Willows in September touch the water clear,
set among the rushes tall of the flowing year.
Rising up from sunlit past comes the shadowed sigh
running toward me silently, love to fortify.

Many are the graceful hearts hung upon this tree.
And it seems there’s room for mine on these branches free;
and the sky above the tree, whether wet or bright,
is my ease and comforting, my good news and light.

2016 - 2017

Because our choir is now so small and our members are unable to rehearse and perform regularly, our rehearsal and performance schedule has been greatly reduced.

We now rehearse on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of each month and plan to sing for Christmas, Easter and hopefully next year the combined choir performances with the Mankato Fellowship Choir in May.

Unison

6-Part Round
  • Practice the unison part until you are completely comfortable with it before singing it as a round.
  • The choir should divide into two, four or six groups. Equal groups of men and equal groups of women.
  • We will sing as many parts as we can.
  • When you reach the end, go back and sing the last section until we all finish together.
  • Voices should enter in this order:
    1. Women: group-1
    2. Men: group-1
    3. Women: group-2
    4. Men: group-2
    5. Women: group-3
    6. Men: group-3

The Welcome Table

Soprano
Alto
Tenor
Bass
  1. Listen to the SATB+piano file to get a feel for the whole piece.
  2. Sing along with your individual voice part until you know it completely.
  3. Sing your part with the SATB+minimal piano file until you are comfortable singing your part with the other voices.
  4. Sing your part with the SATB+piano file until you are completely comfortable singing your part with all voices and the piano.
  5. Note that the piano is an independent voice in this arrangement and you can't rely on it for your part. You have to know your part!
  6. On the final page, the rhythmic intrepration will probably be slower and less rigid. Watch the director!
  7. And finally - to get a feel for the relaxed and bouncy, bright feeling of the song, listen to a version of the song that uses bells in the place of voices.
    • The bright bouncy feeling is more apparent.
    • Entrances are more clear.
    • The piano is there so you can hear everything but is always in the background.
    • Sing along to this version and work to feel that light happy feeling and get your entrances more precisely.

Measure 3:

Bass:
Page 11; 2nd stave; measure 3
Lower note only

Practice the slow versions first!

Practice slowly in order to learn the right way and not waste time having to unlearn anything you incorrectly learned by hurrying.

Don't even attempt to sing the fast version until you are completely at ease with your part.

Notice how some notes are replaced with a rest in order for you to breath. The notation doesn't tell us everything. This is where our musical style and interpretation come in. Practice slowly in a relaxed manner. Take time for good breaths and get comfortable with the style. A metranome is included in all versions to help you feel the beat. The song is not hard if you take time to learn your part.

When you know your music, first sing along to the SATB-Slow version so you can feel how your part fits with the others. Then finally sing to the SATB-Fast version. Don't force your voice. Relax and have fun. The arrangement is delightful and wonderful to sing!

The congregation will practice their part by singing the new hymn with help from the choir on the four Sundays before Easter. Then on Easter Day the congregation will sing the part they have learned and the choir will sing different parts to enrich our song.

Please join us and add your voice to make our Easter service a special musical day for us all.

My Life Flows On in Endless Song

How Can I Keep from Singing was written by a Baptist minister, The Rev. Robert Lowry, and first appeared in an 1869 collection of Sunday school songs, entitled Bright Jewels for the Sunday School.

The song entered Unitarian Universalism in 1969 when it was included in Songs of Faith in Man, published by the First Unitarian Church of Los Angeles. Pete Seeger had sent it to the church for the songbook.

Seeger learned the song in the 1950s from Doris Plenn, who had learned it from her grandmother, a North Carolina Quaker.

Plenn changed the lyrics to protest the jailing of her friends for their political beliefs during the “witch hunts” of the House Un-American Activities Committee.

Has Sorrow Thy Young Days Shaded

Irish Tune “Sly Patrick”

Thomas Moore
Words by
Thomas Moore
(1779-1852)
Alice Parker
Arranged by
Alice Parker
(1925-     )
 

Has sorrow thy young days shaded,
As clouds o’er the morning fleet?
Too fast have those young days faded,
That even in sorrow were sweet?
Does time with his cold wing wither
Each feeling that once was dear?
Then child of misfortune, come hither,
I'll weep with thee, tear for tear.


Has hope, like the bird in the story,
That flitted from tree to tree.
With the talisman’s glittering glory,
Has hope been that bird to thee?
On branch after branch alighting,
The gem did she still display,
And when nearest and most inviting,
Then waft the fair gem away?


If thus the young hours have fleeted,
When sorrow itself look’d bright;
If thus the fair hope hath cheated,
That led thee along so light;
If thus the cold world now wither
Each feeling that once was dear;
Come, child of misfortune, come hither,
I'll weep with thee, tear for tear.

Übers Gebirg Maria geht
(Over the Hills Young Mary Hastes)

(Performed on Easter - Apr. 24, 2011.)

Music composed by Johannes Eccard

  • 1st learn your part alone
  • Then 2 part combinations
  • Then all women
  • Then all women & tenors
  • Then all parts (SSATB)
  • Then everything (All)

Notice how any part makes a perfect duet with any other part.

Johannes Eccard was one of the leading Lutheran composers of the 16th century.

This song, first published in 1585, places the melody in the soprano line and then goes on to display superb polyphony, while still retaining the energy of Martin Luther’s Ein feste Burg of 1529.
