Toby Huelin

Together

I wrote this simple two-part choir piece a few years back, setting words by my grandmother. The piece has taken on a new meaning this year in these difficult times, as the joy of being together with friends and family has been taken away from so many of us. I hope that this piece offers a more positive vision of the future, when we can all be together – and sing together – once more.

I’m happy to offer this piece for free to any choirs that would like to sing it, and I could also provide a piano backing track to aid virtual rehearsals and performances. Just send me a message via the ‘Contact’ page on my website, www.tobyhuelin.com.

Thanks for reading!

Alan Bullard

Rainbow

Written during the COVID lockdown in April 2020, this piece reflects on the healing qualities of the rainbow, the symbol of the NHS during the crisis. It is written for SATB with piano, but can equally well be sung by unison voices and piano. Download licences for copies of the score are available from alanbullardmusic@gmail.com. Rehearsal/recording tracks, and an orchestral accompaniment track (as used on the video), is available here. See also www.alanbullard.co.uk.
