http://ps22chorus.blogspot.com It was our last day of chorus practice for the school year, and I wanted to record the group one last time. So I taught them a harmony for an original song I cowrote in college. I wrote the music and the melody and some guy Nat, sorry I don't remember your last name dude, wrote the lyrics. I've always loved this tune, and having the chorus sing on it obviously only helps. The PS22 Chorus is not a middle, intermediate, or high school group. It is comprised of about 70 public elementary school fifth graders from New York City. Visit our above website for more!
in this episode of 'the choir' the group were recording a CD to send to judges in china in the hope of being asked to participate in the choir olympics but the recording may have come too early for them.

Yehudi Menuhin conducting the Bath Festival Orchestra,and Temple Church Choir. Victoria de los Angeles singing the Laudate Dominum(Psalm 117),composer Mozart. Temple Church,London as a recording venue,1964,for Victoria de los Angeles with the Bath Festival Orchestra, and Temple Church Choir. Recordings of various pieces were laid down,but the audio engineers were dissatisfied with the reverberation within the church,caught by the microphones, and after FOUR days the sessions were abandoned.Victoria must have sung herself hoarse! Fortunately all these takes of religious pieces were not thrown away,but were preserved. Many decades later they were rescued,dusted down, and the least distorted pieces issued. The Temple Church London is a Norman church, built by the Knights Templar,and consecrated in 1185. It has a Chancel,and at the Great West Door,a very large Round(dome). The Round is seen as you enter from Fleet Street. I visited the Temple area three years ago,and went into the church.Tombs of some Knights Templars are in the floor of the Chancel. The BBC now regularly broadcasts from the Temple Church. I think you'll enjoy it. I'M SURPRISED UNCOMPLAINING VICTORIA WASN'T 'STRETCHERED' OUT AFTER FOUR DAYS, SINGING FLAT OUT,TRY AFTER TRY AFTER TRY! Many years later we can enjoy these frustrating efforts.Thank goodness.
