And Your Bird Can Sing

4 May

Our latest song to be A Cappella-ised is from the 1966 album REVOLVER by The Beatles. I think the harmonies they sing are really interesting, intricate and illustrate how singing together with people regularly and who you feel comfortable with can really develop into a unique sound. The Beatles harmonies sound so natural to me and their blend of voices work perfectly…I believe this can happen when any group of people sing regularly together. Everyone has their role and everyone has a contribution to making it sound incredible.

So i was particularly impressed with the speed in which everyone got to grips with the harmonies and specific rhythm of this piece on Thursday. Another testament to how we are developing as a choir. It’s a lovely little song and will be a nice little compliment to some of the more complicated and ‘darker’ songs we have done already. And Your Bird Can Sing is like a ray of sunshine – despite John Lennon claiming it was one of his throw-away songs…I’m not sure I quite believe that!
