True Believers!

The first miracle of this Christmas season was Music Teacher Emer Hartnett’s almost unbelievable accomplishment of organising and executing the Junior School Choir’s grand plans for this Christmas: the practising, recording and promotion of a charity single, ‘Would You Believe?’, to benefit St. Conleth’s partnership with a community in Uganda.   The hours that went into the project were countless and the stress, on both mind and ear considerable, but Ms. Hartnett and her army of sweetly-singing girls and boys pulled it off.  Please support this impressive accomplishment and noble cause by purchasing a copy of the single from the school.  In the meantime, feast your eyes on these videos.   I think you will agree, that miracles do happen, but they are often preceded by talent, hard work and enthusiasm!

First up, a rather rough mash-up of the choir singing in different settings around the school, with a real, live soundtrack!

Now, the same video but backed by the studio recored vocal track.

And, now, the choir in studio, on one of their many ‘takes’:

And lastly, a special note, or is that an arpeggio? Notice one particular boy’s ‘shush’ attempt at the end!
