Singing in a Choir – Janet’s lockdown song

Janet’s online rehearsals during lockdown have been enthusiastically received by singers in her choirs. Of course these rehearsals bring inevitable frustrations for singers and conductors. The joys and benefits of actual choral singing over virtual choirs were the starting point for Janet’s new ‘pop song’ Singing in a Choir. Granta Chorale member Emma Hall had suggested Janet compose a new piece and Emma then produced the video, while Janet’s nephew Robin Wheeler mixed and produced the sound. The video was launched on Youtube at the beginning of August and was then chosen for Making Music’s seventh virtual concert with a video intro from Janet.
