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 peopel 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 heaven declares
Be thou my vision
Bless the Lord (10000 reasons)
Crown Him with many crowns
Father God I wonder
Father we love you
Go forth and tell
Hallelujah sing to Jesus
Holy holy holy Lord God almighty
I the lord of sea and sky
Jesus take me as I am
Led like a lamb to the slaughter
Lord I lift your name on high
Lord the light of your love (shine Jesus shine)
Make me a channel of your peace
Make Way Make Way
Morning has broken
O Lord my God (How great thou art)
Open the eyes of my heart Lord
Spirit of the living God
The king of love my shepherd is
The Lord's My Shepherd (Townend version)
Thine Be the Glory

We've also a video

We did this one for "Thy Kingdom Come", so you may have seen it as part of that.
