Repertoire List Here’s a list of Graham’s suggested links, plus some of the scores attached here, so that we’re all working from copies in the same key etc.

(singers will want to order any of the copyright scores asap to ensure they arrive in time, as delivery can sometimes be quite slow). Graham & Pippa stress the need for even the most accomplished singers and sight-readers to know and learn the pieces beforehand, please.
