CHRIST IS RISEN!
Welcome to CHORVID-20, the international lockdown-choir!
Our director is in Italy, our website is managed in the UK and our media editing team is in Warsaw. We are recording an anthem for Orthodox Pascha (April 19th – one week after Western Easter).
The Anthem is Turchaninov’s ‘Only Begotten Son.’
All you need to do to take part is download the sheet music (copies are provided in Cyrillic and Roman script), sing your part to the Karaoke track provided and submit your video.
If you don’t usually read music, recordings of each individual part (Soprano, Alto, Tenor and Bass), are provided to help you learn the tune of your line. A soundtrack with the pronunciation is also available.
Practice singing along with the click track. You will need to listen to click track with earphones, because the only sound that you should record is your own voice. It is vital to stay in time and in tune with the Karaoke track.
Watch out for the pause on the second page: two beats back in afterwards! Pause on the last note too; one beat in to the ‘s.’
When you feel confident, record yourself singing your part on your computer or your telephone.
Uploading your recording
When you are satisfied with the recording you have made, you can submit it in a file to firstname.lastname@example.org, or by WhatsApp to +4407811885585.
You can also use facebook to transfer your recording. When you have uploaded it, please contact Alexander.
Update! Your video or audio file may be too large to send via email. In this case, the easiest way to send the file is to upload it to online storage (google drive, dropbox, cloud etc.), and then send me a link to this place so that I can download it. Several people have already done this successfully.
The deadline for submissions is noon Saturday 18th April.
We will compile the submissions and release them on Sunday, April 19th.
