Away Day - Sharon Bill Music Matters Vlog

Mendelssohn’s “Elijah’ in a day! Nantwich Choral Society’s ‘Come and Sing’ event brought some interesting revelations and the fun began before we’d even sung a note, including stories of choristers being paid in sprouts and choirs singing in their wedding dresses! It was a tiring day (it’s a long Oratorio, with 42 movements) but it was so great to meet choristers from far and wide and I learned so many interesting tidbits about the work and the composer. What better way to spend a Saturday than meeting lots of lovely people and singing marvellous Mendelssohn?

For He shall give His angels charge over thee

Blessed are the men who fear Him

Cast thy burden upon the Lord

Thanks be to God

Lift thine eyes

He watching over Israel

And then shall your light break forth
