The Sing-Along is almost here!  Please join us this Saturday for a fun afternoon singing amazing music!

Date: Saturday, November 7
Time: 3:30-5pm
Location: The Haven at 112 West Market St, Charlottesville.
Cost: $10 per person at the door, or bring your whole choir for $50!

All singers, all parts, all ages are welcome to come and sing music from the Oxford Book of Tudor Anthems.

Like to listen but don't want to sing? You are more than welcome to come to the Tudor Anthem Sing-along as a listener.

The Haven is in downtown Charlottesville.  Street parking is sometimes available but is often limited to 2 hours on Saturdays.  Parking is available a few blocks away in the parking garages on Market Street and Water Street.

Coming from out of town and would like a bite to eat before heading home?  The Haven is one block from Charlottesville's Downtown Mall, a pedestrian mall with a multitude of dining choices and prices.

Music for the Sing-Along

If you have a copy of the Oxford Book of Tudor Anthems, please bring it with you.  We have 30 copies available to lend on a first come basis.  Used copies can be found on Amazon.com orAlibris.com

Many of the Tudor Anthems are available on the Choral Public Domain Library wiki, located atwww.cpdl.org.  The list of possible pieces for the sing-along is below and where a CPDL version exists, it is linked in the list. I have tried to pick a version as close as possible to the Oxford version but note that if you bring PDFs, they may vary in text underlay or have some different notes from the Oxford version.

Almighty and Everlasting God, by Gibbons (link does not go to cpdl.org but original link was located there and the file is free to download and use)
Ascendit Deus, by Philips
Ave Maria, by Parsons
Ave Verum Corpus, by Byrd
Call to Remembrance, by Farrant
If Ye Love Me, by Tallis
Justorum Animae, by Byrd (note that the soprano 1 and 2 lines are reversed in the CPDL edition from the Oxford Book of Tudor Anthem version, and the Oxford version is in D, so down 1 1/2 steps from the CPDL version)
Lord for they Tender Mercy's Sake, by Farrant
O Nata Lux, by Tallis
When David Heard, by Tomkins
This is the Record of John, by Gibbons
Sing Joyfully, by Byrd
