The WGNC virtual choir
Are you missing congregational singing? If so, there is an opportunity to take part in a WGNC Virtual Choir. The instructions on how to do this are below. Please do join in if you can.
To sing well, it is very important to warm-up. Here is a short set of exercises to prepare your voice. If you click on the link, you should be taken to a short audio file which will talk you through what to do.
We are going to sing “Make way, make way!”. There are slightly different parts for men and women in this one, as you probably know. The links below are to recordings of the different parts being sung.
There are no notated parts available this time, but you should find it easy enough to sing along to the backing track. Here are the words.
The idea is that you listen to the recording on earphones or headphones, while recording your own voice singing the same part. The recording you make should be only of your voice. The track you listen to is to make it possible to synchronise all the recordings later. You might like to use one of the simple recording apps for phones, such as Voice Memos or Easy Recorder. You can also record on a computer or laptop if you have suitable software. The ideal form of returned file is .wav but .mp3 or any other standard format should also be fine. Please send the file with the recording to email@example.com by e-mail (or WhatsApp if that is more convenient and you have my mobile number).
Please send your recording in by 5pm on Saturday 20th February so that the results can be put together for the Sunday service on 21st February.
I hope that doesn’t sound too complicated! This is intended as a fun project, so if it becomes a chore, or difficult to do, or you simply don’t fancy it, that’s no problem at all. Also, feel free to get in touch if a conversation about how to do it would be useful.
Finally, if you can think of any family or friends that would enjoy joining in please do invite them.
