For our fourth attempt at a virtual choir video whilst we are still under ‘stay at home’ orders here in the UK, we decided to adopt the theme of Love.
This tied in nicely with Valentines day on 14 February and we teamed up with our friends at JAM Duo to make our video.
The song chosen for Cirencester Male Voice Choir was ‘If we only have Love’. The choir first learnt this a couple of years ago when we had a joint concert in Cirencester Parish Church with a visiting choir from Norway. In that instance it was the joint final song which the choirs sang together.
We picked this song for its obvious links to love. And, at a time when the world needs quite a bit of love we felt this was appropriate.
JAM Duo (which is made up of our music team Jules & Anne-Marie hence the name JAM!) is a Cello and Piano Duo who perform at weddings and events all over the UK. They chose to play ‘Love me Like you do’ by Ellie Goulding.
Alongside the men singing there are a number of photographs. Everyone in the choir was asked to submit of photograph of what love meant to them. We got a number of wedding photos and family photos as well as some classic cars and other random things!
We hope you enjoy our video. On this occasion we chose to fundraise for Pancreatic Cancer UK. At the time of writing we had raised £1374 which is a great achievement with just one short video that’s only been online for a week or so.
Watch this space for our next video which will be coming soon!
