Let's not put a label on it. We have tried a choir before and it crashed and burned. Imploded from the inside really. Half of us wanted a director. The other half didn't, but acted like one. It was a mess. I admit I was as messy as anyone. So when the call went out for "Chantresses" for this years Mabon ritual I was hesitant but willing to step up.
Three of us ended up singing. There was only one rehearsal with the guitarist. And we did alright. Whew! Now where do we go from here? I love what live voices add to a ritual. Usually, when I write a ritual there is a blend of live and canned. It's hard to sing and dance the circle at the same time and we have limited technology, microphone wise. That's why I will try to get the word out early as to what songs we will be using. I imagine voices all around the circle joining as one. (Ahhh, Bliss face)
