Well should I be honoured to be nominated blogger or have I drawn the short straw? The first thing I've learned is that I desperately need a new laptop! Hopefully my husband will read this- my 30th birthday is just around the corner!
As its such a beautiful day I thought I would blog about the newest addition to our repertiore. Fields of Gold brings up wonderful images of summerevenings and Dale's arrangement is simple and effective, like a chilled glass of sauvignon blanc on a hazy day.
Man, I would kill for a nice glass of dry white wine. Baby's due in just over 4 weeks- not long to go now- get that bottle in the fridge!
Anyway... So Fields of Gold... it was written and recorded by Sting in 1993 and also famously recorded by Eva Cassidy. The original recording included a harmonica solo and any budding harmonica players amongst the Bois should make themselves known! It was also recently seen on the Voice on BBC1 being sung in Welsh by Bronwen Lewis- 'Y Caeau Aur'. Don't often find myself disagreeing with Will.I.Am but he should've turned around for her!
Our version also starts with a vocal solo- yet to be allocated. We take great pride in having so many great singers and potential soloists amongst our members. We're a small choir, but perfectly formed- everyone makes a contribution!
So we're looking forward to singing this one for you- hopefully on a sunny summers evening and if we're very lucky, with a nice glass of Sauvignon Blanc!
