From Compstall, John led the party up and all around Werneth Low. The picture provides a tantalising (if distant) glimpse of the descent from Paradise which will happen in the next walk. (Which starts with the 10:00 bus from the centre of Marple to New Mills on Thursday August 13th. Join us there!)
Roger nominated a bus to Charlesworth for the start of this walk, then led us up the northern rampart of Coombes Rocks, around, down-and-up to Brown Low, before skirting various outposts of civilisation to return to Marple. Continue reading
As advertised, the second out-of-lockdown-but-not-singing-yet walk was led by John P. who took us on a circuit of well-known bridleways and obscure field paths. Continue reading
During The Great Pestilence, when we cannot meet to sing, some of us (as many as are willing and able) have decided to meet to walk. Continue reading
Selig sind die das Lied teilen…
(And for much the same reason.)
Well, we didn’t all get to sing Brahms’ German Requiem on 4 April 2020 because, along with most of the country, we were self-isolating. However, we did use the the opportunity to sing it separately, but at much the same time. This is what some of us looked like.From this collage, you may deduce that:-
- From the perspective of the choir the most important part of the conductor is the hands.
- It’s really hard to take a selfie while conducting.
- One of us might have wished to be singing something else.
- Singing the requiem really dries your throat out.
- Someone was 200 miles from a bow tie.
- Whilst we might all have had the same score, we were singing different sections.
- One of us takes a professional approach to studio singing.
- Some of us occasionally look up at the conductor.
- It’s possible that one of us is a naturist.
