World Of Music Choir: Tuesday 9th June – ‘Country Life’ led by Bella Hardy

Band on the Wall’s doors may be shut for a while but you can still take part in our fun music learning programmes from the comfort of your own home.

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 score 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 event is interactive; you can comment and ask questions, and the video will be available after the workshop to recap and sing-along to.

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: Country Life

(Traditional)

CHORUS:

I like to rise when the sun she rises
Early in the morning
And I like to hear them small birds singing
Merrily upon the laylum
And hurrah for the life of a country boy
And to ramble in the new-mown hay

Verse 1: In spring we sow, at the harvest mow
And that is how the seasons round they go
But of all the times if choose I may
I’d be rambling through the new-mown hay

Verse 2: In winter when the skies are grey
We hedge and ditch our times away
But in the summer when the sun shines gay
We go rambling through the new-mown hay
