We have an unusual arrangement of voices for this visit. You may be asked to sing a different part to normal to aid balance. Every care will be taken to ensure that any such request will be within the normal expected range for your voice part.
Where available the music above is linked to online scores. You are reminded that no time will be spent in rehearsal note bashing music made available in advance.
Lichfield Cathedral, The Close, Lichfield WS13 7LD
The Song School is at 14 The Close (to the north-west of the cathedral). Please be mindful that 14 The Close is also home to cathedral staff.
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 firstname.lastname@example.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 of your acceptance of this invitation. Please do not arrange non-refundable travel or accommodation until after this time. If you need to know immediately, please contact Ed at email@example.com
We will not be arranging group accommodation for this visit.
