Westminster Abbey, Day 2

In spite of singing eight services with accompanying rehearsals in the Abbey, the Schola may spend even more time behind the scenes in the rehearsal room at Cheney gates where they will fret not only over notes and tempo, but consonants and breaths. As with so much of life, it’s here, behind the scenes, where the bulk of the work is done.  Here’s a little peek at the morning rehearsal, where the choir moves from their warm-ups exercises (AH’s and numbers, and the ever fun “Copper Bottomed Coffee Pot”) to the beauty of their prayers in song.
