Bledlow Holy Trinity Church Choir
LEARNING PAGE

Here is the music we are currently working on, with links to scores, composers' biographies, YouTube recordings and part-learning sites where available. At the bottom are links to various learning aids. Learning files are available on John Fletcher's excellent website. As a choir, we are signed up to this, and you can find instructions for using it here (pdf).
T
here are also 3 archive pages, listing 1) the music we have sung in cathedrals, 2) our repertoire catalogue in alphabetical order of composer, & 3) of title.


Asked why he continued to practice for three hours a day at the age of 93, the great Catalan 'cellist, Pablo Casals, answered: 'Because I'm beginning to notice some improvement.'
