CPC Members' Area

Welcome to the Members' Area of the Cleveland Philharmonic Choir's website. Here you will find information about our plans during this COVID period when we are unable to meet and rehearse together. 
Note that by the middle of 2021 there will be major structural changes to our website as we move from being hosted by Webs to VistaPrint. Members of the choir will no longer need to log into the website.  Instead, there may be a small number of areas of information which will be accessed by password, but most of the information will remain publicly viewable, to make it easier for our members, new and old, to access the information they need.

Mozart Mass in C minor - K427

In May we will start to practice this great work.  In order to help you rehearse, I suggest you try using the Cyberbass rehearsal files.  It is a great, free resource and allows you to practice your own part at a range of speeds. You can also set up a "loop" which allows you to go over tricky parts until you get it right!

All of the tracks and parts for the Mass in C minor can be found here at Cyberbass.

Here are the sections of the Mass that we will start in May.  The page numbers given are for the Maunder edition which we will be using.  Click on the section to download the score, if you don't already have the full score:

Finally, you can read these wonderful notes about the work prepared by John Hillier in 2010. 

Music for the 2021 Summer Term - Join in with some online singing rehearsals


Isaac has prepared some performance notes for these pieces, to help us rehearse and record them.  Please click on this and read.

NEW - Here are the Backing Tracks for the pieces we will be doing in the Summer Concert.  Just double click on the parts you want to play, or you can download them to your own computer or device to play from there.  NOTE: If anyone spots an incorrect link (entirely possible), please email or text me and I will get it fixed as soon as possible - thanks.

Isaac Conroy, our Assistant Music Director and all-round excellent musician, has agreed to continue Zoom rehearsals on Tuesdays from 7.30-8.20pm.  The 'meeting' will open at 7.15 to allow people to connect and catch up with friends.   

We will restart Zoom rehearsals on Tuesday 27th April 2021.  The invitation details are on a Choir Newsletter that you should have received.  If you do not have the information you need, please contact your voice rep.

The sessions are voluntary and is no charge for them.  However, if you are no longer paying a sub, you might consider making a voluntary donation at some point in the future.
Here are the music scores for the pieces we plan to sing in our this summer.  You can download these and print them off. The backing tracks are in the table above.

My love is like a red, red rose
Water of Tyne
      Flow gently sweet Afton
        My Spirit sang all day
        As Torrents in Summer  [Note: this is the SATB version, not the previously posted SSA version]

        Please remember that, while you will be able to hear Isaac singing and the accompaniment, nobody will be able to hear you, so you can sing as loudly (and as badly) as you like without embarrassment!

        Please see this Help document for how to set up and use Zoom in these rehearsals.
