June Tunes & Summer Break

Hi there

Here are my recordings from the workshop in Wivenhoe last Saturday
afternoon.

I had forgotten to tell you that some of the songs are HARD, especially
with a relatively small group!

So fantastically well done!! The songs are a little shaky in places, but
considering we learnt four songs in less than three hours, that's only
to be expected.

Here is the link to the songs I recorded:

There are three MP3 files, one for each song (I didn't record Tonight I
belong to you).

I've added lyrics and song information as a comment to each song.

Click on each song to play it. Hover over each title to see the option
to download. You can also download the entire folder (i.e. all five
songs) at once by clicking on Download at the top.

Ignore any "Sign up for Box and get 5GB free" pop-ups by just clicking
the cross in the top right corner.

You can also leave comments on each song if you feel inclined! It would
be nice to hear what you think.

I promised a link to some real Corsicans singing. Here is the group A
filetta (http://www.afiletta.com/):

Exquisite!!

And now for something completely different, Patience and Prudence
singing Tonight you belong to me (written in 1926):

and here is Steve Martin singing it in the movie The Jerk where I first
heard it:

Enjoy!

Hope to see you in October, but don't forget Clive's session in September.
