Virtual Choir

What is a virtual choir?

There are many types of virtual choir or band, but the one thing that is in common is that the people on the recording you hear were not in the same room at the same time. This has therefore flourished a lot during lockdown 2020. It's also helped us keep in touch and continue to work with people who sing and play with us while in Tenerife but are currently not even in the same country as each other.

For our Virtual Choir (and band) we have created basic backing tracks, which are sent out by email. The choir and band members then record their parts (sometimes more than one - especially true for echoes and harmonies) while listening to these tracks and send them back. These recordings are made on a variety of devices, from mobile phones to Digital Audio Workstations. They are then assembled into one mix and used in our service on that Sunday.

Those on these recordings are:
(not everyone is on every recording - this is supposed to be fun so there is no obligation to record everything, and some people joined us for special occasions, such as the "Carols by Zoomlight" service)

The songs and hymns we've used so far are:

A new commandment
All creatures of our God and king
All heaven declares
All I once held dear
All people that on earth do dwell
Amazing grace
And can it be
Angels from the realms of glory
At the name of Jesus
Away in a manger
Be still and know
Be thou my vision
Because He lives
Bless the Lord (10000 reasons)
Blessed be your name
Brother, sister let me serve you (the servant song)
Build your kingdom here
Colours of day
Come and join the celebration
Come, now is the time to worship
Come thou long-expected Jesus
Create in me
Crown Him with many crowns
Day by day (prepare ye the way of the Lord)
Dear Lord and Father of mankind
Father God I wonder
Father I place into your hands
Father we love you
From Heaven you came (Servant king)
Go forth and tell
God forgave my sin (Freely freely)
Great is thy faithfulness
Guide me, O thou great Jehovah
Hallelujah sing to Jesus
He has risen
Here is love
Holy holy holy Lord God almighty
I am a new creation
I am the bread of life
I cannot tell
I give you all the honour
I hear the sound of rustling
I the lord of sea and sky
I want to serve the purpose of God
I will sing the wondrous story
I will worship
In Christ alone
Jesus Christ is risen today
Jesus is King
Jesus is Lord!
Jesus take me as I am
Joy to the world
King of kings, majesty
Led like a lamb to the slaughter
Let everything that has breath
Let there be love shared among us
Light of the world
Longing for light (Christ be our light)
Lord, for the years
Lord I come to you
Lord I lift your name on high
Lord the light of your love (shine Jesus shine)
Love divine
Love incarnate (with a prayer)
Make me a channel of your peace
Make Way Make Way
Morning has broken
My Jesus, My Saviour
O come all ye faithful
O come o come Emmanuel
O for a thousand tongues to sing
O holy night
O little town of Bethlehem
O Lord my God (How great thou art)
Once in royal David's city
One shall tell another
Open the eyes of my heart Lord
Open our eyes, Lord
Our God is greater (water you turned into wine)
Praise, my soul, the king of heaven
Praise God from whom all blessings flow
Purify my heart
Silent night
Spirit of the living God
Take my life, and let it be
Thank you for saving me
The first nowell
The king of love my shepherd is
The Lord's My Shepherd (Townend version)
The Spirit lives to set us free (walk walk in the light)
The Summons (will you come and follow me)
There is a redeemer
Thine Be the Glory
Tell out, my soul
To be in your presence
To God be the Glory
We plough the fields and scatter
What a friend we have in Jesus (tune: the carnival is over)
When I survey
When I was lost
You are the king of glory

We did this one for "Thy Kingdom Come", so you may have seen it as part of that.
