It's been a quiet summer for Capella. We've been enjoying consolidating some of our older pieces, and working on new ones, including arrangements of 'A Nightingale Sang in Berkeley Square' and 'I'll Fly Away'. The beautiful summer evenings have even meant we've held some of our rehearsals outside! You can see though that we do occasionally have problems with Paul who on this occasion decided to try out the tea cosy for size!!
In June we visited the Munros, where we sang a few of their favourite songs from our recent CD, 'Gloryland', and Ian (arguably our biggest fan!) interviewed us about the experience of recording it.
From time to time we have sung to raise money for a good cause and on 7th October, we'll be performing the songs on our CD immediately after the morning service. The money raised by selling the CD will all go towards the Indonesian earthquake and tsunami appeal.
We're back to regular rehearsals now and making plans for the term ahead - including singing at Critchill Court residential home, Christmas performances, and hopefully some busking. Watch this space for details.
