Sunday Documentary: “Singing From Memory” – The American Boychoir

May 24, 2015

Here is the full length documentary film I made in 1998, built from footage generated in the production of my two earlier Boychoir films and other stock elements.

Don't let the fact that this was made in 1998 put you off, it's still well worth watching as a historical record and a well-made documentary, and also because the things that make a good choir good don't actually change that much over the centuries let alone over the decades.

Les Petits Chanteurs de Sainte-Croix de Neuilly: – MESSIAH – Rejoice

The fast major-key beginning and end of this lovely soprano aria from Messiah require a singer capable of virtuosic singing while the slow minor-key middle section requires the singer to be expressive and meditative. In short it's difficult to sing. Rémi B of the Petits Chanteurs de Sainte-Croix de Neuilly under Simon Polgar sings it really rather well in this video of a live performance given in May 2006. Enjoy :-).
