Recordings of your choir

Do any of you record your choir's performances?  If so, do you have a website where I can hear samples?  Thank you!

You can hear some recordings of my community chorus, The Schoodic Summer Chorus, at http://fleap.com/ssc.html. The recordings are a few years old but give a sense of the chorus and the rep.
best wishes,

Yes, Elizabeth, you can check website of www.geshem.cz and see a few spirituals and if you go to youtube.com - and search for "geshem" - there are many of them.
 
Otherwise you can check also my new group Let´s Go! and find it at youtube.com under the world "letsgospirituals"
 
I would be happy to support you and this community. If you like, you can have a songbook American Spirituals (SATB Acappella Arrangements released the last year).
 
Best regards

We don't record every performance; just the ones we feel we want to save for archival purposes, to check our progress year to year, season to season, etc.
 
I have a few sample recordings of Cantaré, based in Seattle, WA, here:
 
 
Our website is here:
 
 
We're a large-ish community chamber choir (about 38-40 voices most of the time).
 
Cheers ...

Lana Mountford's work is BEAUTIFUL!

I agree, sure would like to promote her Riders of the Earth in the Marketplace.  More conductors need to meet that piece.   Works with piano and one other melodic instrument add a ton to a High School concert experience. What do you say Lana? Your piece made me think of that new ultra high res picture of the Earth that NASA put out last week.

Goodness!  thanks, both of you!
 
I'm planning to add "Riders .. " to the marketplace when I have some spare minutes to get the score ready (add watermark, etc.).  The past week or so has been filled with "other stuff" (annual condo association meetings, getting things ready for my seniors choir, etc.), but that piece is one I wanted to offer here, along with a couple of others: a setting of "Blow, Blow thou Winter Wind" for SSA with piano and brass quintet, and a set of four short pieces for SATB a cappella based on writings of and about Charles Darwin.
 
Jack, it's funny you should mention the new NASA photo.  The text for "Riders ... " is excerpted from an Archibald MacLeish essay written in 1969, and inspired by his viewing of a photo taken from the moon of the earth rising over the horizon "small and blue and beautiful."  Getting permission to use the text was quite a project in itself, and is one of the reasons I'm so reluctant to set non-public-domain text.
 
I'll try to get some time this weekend to get it ready to upload.
