Harry had to change the key of “To Be A Journeyman” because young Sam’s voice is changing. He is 12 and has played in Bugsy Malone but is obviously growing up fast!
The MIDI files he had created for Paul Nash at St Mary’s and All Saints (Crooked/twisted Spire church) didn’t want to play-I think that was because of the silences in front of the input ‘data’. Harry thought they were just for notation purposes. Sam was worried about hanging on to the microphone for too long when they were asked to post it to David for his ‘finale’ rendition. Director Andrew reassured him to hold onto the microphone as long as he needed-not to rush.
Mary has come up with an idea for costumes for the ‘girls’ while Andrew is struggling with the men’s attire.
So far I have received files from two of the ladies in Dronfield Choir. We are hoping many more will make the effort before our Monday deadline. We asked a third choir but the leader has been very ill and unable to rally the ‘troops’.
Peter has managed to borrow a Zoom recorder (not the online version) so we can visit The Crooked Spire tomorrow when the tenor bell will be rung for Remembrance Sunday. We hope to use the recording for Beth’s Lament in our musical. Peter has also been busily recording sounds of tools such as chisels, saws and even an adze (a medieval axe) to use for the ‘film’.
