General info

All music will be provided on the day. You will be expected to have learnt music made available in advance of the visit. No time in the rehearsal will be given to note-bashing this music. We will spend more time looking at music introduced on the day. We regret that copyright does not always allow us to make all music available beforehand.

Cassocks and surplices will be provided on the day (if you are new, please send your approx height and build to Elizabeth at secretary@harsnettchoir.org).

Please wear quiet black shoes and black socks/tights as these might show under your cassock.

We do limit the number of people we can take to fit the stalls and maintain balance between the parts. Places are assigned on a first come first served basis. You will be informed if your part is over-subscribed within 48 hours from signing up for this visit. Please do not arrange non-refundable travel or accommodation until after this time. If you need to know immediately, please contact Ed at md@harsnettchoir.org

We will not be arranging group accommodation for this visit.

Online resources

Where available, online versions of sheet music are linked from the 'music' section above.

Once the music list has been agreed with the cathedral, Ed will create a Spotify playlist and provide video recordings below. Please bear in mind that the sheet music and recordings linked from here may differ subtly to our own version on the day.

If you have any questions, please contact Ed.
