World Of Music Choir: Tuesday 23rd February – ‘Bold Riley’ led by Bella Hardy

*If you would like to pay for choir sessions, please donate to our Young Musician Instrument Bursary Fund: https://donorbox.org/womchoir*

Tune in every Tuesday at 6pm (UK time) to join the World Of Music Choir online! Sing traditional and modern songs, harmonies and rounds. We learn by ear so you don’t have to read music, but if you would like the notation it can be downloaded from this dropbox, where we’ll also upload an mp3 of the song to sing-along to after the session!

This live choir is interactive; you can comment and ask questions, and the video will be available after the workshop.

To view and add live comments, open this video in YouTube.

Email learning@bandonthewall.org to become an official choir member!


This Week’s Song: Bold Riley (Traditional)

O the rain it is raineth all day long
   Bold Riley O, Bold Riley
And the Normandy winds are blowing strong
   Bold Riley O has gone away

Goodbye my sweetheart, goodbye my dear O
         Bold Riley O, Bold Riley
Goodbye my darling, goodbye my dear O
        Bold Riley O has gone away

The anchors weighed and the sails all set
And them Liverpool Judies we’ll ne’er forget

We’re bound away for the Bengal Bay
Keep pumping boys it’s a mighty long way

Cheer up Mary Ellen, don’t be so glum
On a white-stocking day we’ll drink hot rum
