Yes, this is a week late … unless you celebrate Orthodox Easter, in which case you are celebrating today!

Christos Anesti! Alithos Anesti!

A virtual choir sings “In resurrectione tua Christe coeli et terra laetentur!” (In your resurrection, Christ, heaven and earth rejoice!)

To celebrate Easter, 50 young adults from all over the world – singers and instrumentalists – share from their homes the song. Thank you everyone, specially the coordination team!

Self-isolating singers from around the world submitted recordings to this virtual ensemble of pg. 236 “Easter Anthem” from The Sacred Harp.

Be sure and do the 360° thing! It’s fun to see all those singers!

The Royal Choral Society performed the Hallelujah Chorus from Handel’s Messiah virtually this Good Friday, continuing a Royal Albert Hall tradition that has been going for 144 years – broken only by the Blitz in 1940/1.

Following the cancellation of this year’s annual performance due to Covid-19, members formed a virtual choir to allow audiences everywhere to enjoy this Easter institution. The choir invited the public to join them in singing the ‘Hallelujah Chorus’ at 4:35pm (BST) on Good Friday 10 April 2020.

82 members of the Royal Choral Society filmed themselves singing in their own homes, and the videos were then stitched together, and shared as part of the Royal Albert Hall’s #RoyalAlberHome series. Conductor Richard Cooke joined from his garden, with Richard Pearce – regular organist for the Last Night of the Proms – providing accompaniment.

The Royal Choral Society is a registered charity but receives no funding, relying mostly on ticket sales. Many 2020 Messiah ticket holders have kindly donated their refunds to the choir. Donations can be made via the choir’s website www.royalchoralsociety.co.uk
