Music

Information to follow.


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.

Folders

You will be given a cardboard wallet containing the week’s music. It would greatly help if you kept all the music in the wallet when not in use. Please ensure that any markings you make on your copy are made in pencil only.

Harsnett borrows a great deal of music from various sources as well as lending our own music to other choirs. Their willingness to lend it to us for free depends on us returning it promptly, intact, and with our pencil markings removed. You may keep music you have downloaded or, if you wish, donate it to the choir library.

For services, we carry music in red hardback folders. If you have one of these, please remember to bring it with you. If you do not have one, they will be available. Please return both folders and all music before you leave.

Location

Norwich Cathedral, The Close, Norwich NR1 4DH

We will likely be rehearsing in a location away from the cathedral. More information will be provided in due course.

Robing and dress

The appearance of the choir is important: it gets noticed and affects how we come across.

The choir provides cassocks, surplices and whites. If you have yours at home, please be sure to bring them with you. If you haven’t done so already and this is your first time with Harsnett, please let Elizabeth Jack know your approximate height and build.

Please wear quiet black shoes and dark trousers and socks or tights as these may show under your cassock. Academical hoods and RSCM medals may be worn during Evensong. They are not worn at the Eucharist.
