Virtual Choir

What is a virtual choir?

There are many types of virtual choir or band, but the one thing that is in common is that the people on the recording you hear were not in the same room at the same time. This has therefore flourished a lot during lockdown 2020. It's also helped us keep in touch and continue to work with people who sing and play with us while in Tenerife but are currently not even in the same country as each other.

For our Virtual Choir (and band) we have created basic backing tracks, which are sent out by email. The choir and band members then record their parts (sometimes more than one - especially true for echoes and harmonies) while listening to these tracks and send them back. These recordings are made on a variety of devices, from mobile phones to Digital Audio Workstations. They are then assembled into one mix and used in our service on that Sunday.

Those on these recordings are:
(not everyone is on every recording - this is supposed to be fun so there is no obligation to record everything)

The songs and hymns we've used so far are:

All creatures of our God and king
All heaven declares
Amazing grace
And can it be
Be thou my vision
Bless the Lord (10000 reasons)
Brother, sister let me serve you (the servant song)
Colours of day
Come, now is the time to worship
Crown Him with many crowns
Dear Lord and Father of mankind
Father God I wonder
Father I place into your hands
Father we love you
Go forth and tell
Great is thy faithfulness
Hallelujah sing to Jesus
Here is love
Holy holy holy Lord God almighty
I cannot tell
I the lord of sea and sky
I give you all the honour
I will worship
In Christ alone
Jesus is Lord!
Jesus take me as I am
Led like a lamb to the slaughter
Let everything that has breath
Let there be love shared among us
Lord I come to you
Lord I lift your name on high
Lord the light of your love (shine Jesus shine)
Love divine
Make me a channel of your peace
Make Way Make Way
Morning has broken
My Jesus, My Saviour
O for a thousand tongues to sing
O Lord my God (How great thou art)
Open the eyes of my heart Lord
Spirit of the living God
Thank you for saving me
The king of love my shepherd is
The Lord's My Shepherd (Townend version)
The Summons (will you come and follow me)
Thine Be the Glory
To God be the Glory
