Lead me, Lord – Samuel Sebastian Wesley St Mildred’s Virtual Choir

During the lockdown, St Mildred’s Choir has continued to keep busy and we have produced a recording of Samuel Sebastian Wesley’s ‘Lead me, Lord’ which will premiere on our website from Easter Sunday onwards.

This amazing project has involved each chorister recording their part individually at home, to an accompaniment and conducting video provided by me. Then they sent back their recordings, and I have added them together to form the choir.

I’m sure you’ll agree (when you hear it) the results are incredible!

This perennially popular piece is an extract from Wesley’s Praise the Lord, O my soul, written in 1861. It is perfect for the Virtual Choir as it is short, relatively unchallenging vocally, and accompanied throughout. We hope you enjoy our first attempt at virtual singing!

We are so disappointed not to be able to perform the music we have been learning since January, but this project has enabled us to perform digitally and do something we’ve never done before.
