Year 13: Comparison Tracks


Be Our Guest: Lyrics

Ma chere Mademoiselle, it is with deepest pride 
and greatest pleasure that we welcome you tonight.
And now we invite you to relax, let us pull up a 
chair as the dining room proudly presents - 
your dinner!

Be our guest! Be our guest!
Put our service to the test
Tie your napkin 'round your neck, cherie
And we'll provide the rest
Soup du jour
Hot hors d'oeuvres
Why, we only live to serve
Try the grey stuff

It's delicious

Don't believe me? Ask the dishes
They can sing, they can dance
After all, Miss, this is France
And a dinner here is never second best
Go on, unfold your menu
Take a glance and then you'll
Be our guest
Oui, our guest
Be our guest!

Lumiere and Chorus:
Beef ragout
Cheese souffle
Pie and pudding "en flambe"

We'll prepare and serve with flair
A culinary cabaret!
You're alone
And you're scared
But the banquet's all prepared
No one's gloomy or complaining
While the flatware's entertaining

We tell jokes! 

I do tricks

How playing an instrument benefits your brain

No extra comments needed. Just watch!

Senior String Group

What a lovely first rehearsal today!

Here is a wonderful performance of Corelli's Christmas Concerto.  The playing is divine, though I am not a massive fan of the decorations on repeat.

Below is a very different performance along with the score, which you might enjoy.  I will have a think about which movements we will rehearse.

Choir Carols

As promised, here are the Choir carols we will be singing this Christmas. Please listen and follow your part so that we can start from a good position next Friday.  It's going to be lush!
