While the Covid-19 lock-down continues, Cantemus rehearsals continue by Zoom for those with the technology. We have found that rehearsing muted by part has proved most effective, in view of the inherent lag in the app and limitations of individual’s computer equipment, microphones etc. With quite a challenging and new work, and the lack of suitable sound engineering and computer wizardry we have not yet accomplished a satisfactory all parts recording, but we are learning all the time and getting to grips with our circumstances as best we can and making progress. What is important is that we are keeping in touch with each other, so that when circumstances do change we are as well placed as we can be once again to enjoy ourselves and entertain our audiences anew.
