ticket tally (lis)
Well done last night singers... the material is beginning to take a bit
of real shape. The demand for tickets has been so high that we really
have no seats left to offer and have a full house to look forward to.
Please let us know if any of your numbers reduce as others may be
grateful for them.
We will rehearse from 7.30 to 9.30 for the remaining weeks please (
7.00pm as usual for the Three Kings ensemble). Thank you, Lis

clvoices web site problem (mike)
Hi all. I know at least one person has had trouble accessing the
clvoices website to get at rehearsal material.
We've been having some problems the past week or so, apparently under a
form of sustained cyber attack. It appears someone, somewhere, doesn't
Unfortunately, I'm afraid my hastily crafted defences have managed to
"defend" against some legitimate users as well, and I apologise for
that. I've disabled that code now (while hoping the worst is over),
which will at least make sure rehearsal material is accessible to
members - so if you've been having difficulties getting through, please
do try again.
Again, my apologies if you've experienced difficulties.

Good morning singers,
Tomorrow night, it would probably be useful if we could make use of an
extra 15mins and continue till 9.30 pm please. Thank you, Lis

Thank you for all your hard work last night... let's keep the pace going
as there is still a fair bit of tidying to do.
Lovely to have such high ticket numbers in demand... let's be able to
put on a really good show for your fan clubs. Please make use of
rehearsal material still available on line.. Mike has been busy
beavering away with additions.
He has now included the descant line of Peace/Silent night for printing
and listening to This and many others can be found at
clvoices.org.uk/members/rmindex.html but you will need the correct
user name and password as given on page 2 of your file booklet.
Sadly we do not have enough singers free to do the Memorial service at
St. Paul's. I'm sure given more notice this might have been possible (
and we have been asked to consider this for next year).
Last but not least.... It was a delight to have David Walkling back
with us last night and clearly doing so very well. See you all next

memorial request (lis)
At somewhat short notice, we have been asked to sing again at one of the
Daniel Robinson Christmas memorial services at St Paul's town centre
church, Harlow which is on Wednesday 4th December ( a few days after
If enough of you are free to arrive at 6.30pm, then we will go ahead. We
would plan to sing some of our current Christmas repertoire as well as
some of the material we sang there last time. Please let us know by
e-mail or by signing up tonight if you are willing to sing.
Thank you, Lis

Hi all; I've put some rehearsal material for bars 36-54 of christmas

keep the date (lis)
We are just over the half way mark now.. so plenty to polish, but lots
learned. However we will be giving the programme a slight tweak... as
will be explained on Thursday.
After the concert on Sat. 30th Nov. ( be starting to thinking how many
tickets you'd like please) we will then not meet until Thursday 19th
December... when we plan to have a short ' top and tail' rehearsal ( in
preparation for the Community Carol Service on Sunday 22nd) followed
by a mince- pie - munch- and- sing over some frothy Christmas favourites.
So please reserve that Thursday even if you can't come to the carol
service.. and we'll enjoy a bit of a sing and sup.

Thursday p.m. (david.norkett)
Hello singers all
Long time no see! But hope you all had some refreshing time away from
commitments. Lis and I are both looking forward to our Christmas
programme and very much hope that you all will enjoy working on it too.
Summer is gradually departing, but the rose bush you gave me at the end
of last season still has 14 roses on it - a pleasure to look at.
I am sending this as a try-out to see if I can reach the choir without
having to ask Lis to send messages on!
Hoping to see you all tomorrow (even though I might be a Hopalong
Cassidy with a bad knee again!)
