From Anne-Marie - update
I hope you are ok and looking forward to spring. Many thanks, Helen, for forwarding Ron's message and lovely photos.
I'm fine (touch wood). My Cathedral job has come to an end (so I'm free on Saturdays!!) but I'm still doing library work and exploring options in archives - also garden volunteering at Ushaw College where I'm enjoying seeing spring gradually come along.
I was reminded of Argus last week when I heard this arrangement of Seal Lullaby with the Kanye Mason family on YouTube - it brought back happy memories: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2on4IS8fIcc
All the best and greetings to all 'Argusians' (not sure if that's the right term!!)
The "Stay At Home Choir with The King's Singers". This is a beautiful rendition of the Billy Joel song we also sing.

Their next project is with The Swingles.
From Helen - Not much happening
Not much coming in from poeple - I hope you're all too busy enjoying your gardens and lovely weather.
So here's something uplifting from "Voices of Hope" to keep you going.
"Like A Rainbow Shining" by Will Todd.
A lovely song by local composer and musician Will Todd. Choirs can access free resources to sing this in the future.
Our Codebreaker Project
Just in case anyone interested - this was released on Sunday when Newcastle Choral Society should have done a Sage concert and we’re releasing another one on VE Day.
From Maureen - a Music video
Another amazing musical video which I got via Newcastle Choral Society
From Val - Beethoven's 5th
Something I got from Harrogate Choral. Makes you smile.
Just cllick on the file to start the video running - worth a watch :)
