Spring Term Chorale Work

All students will complete Edexcel Papers 2014 and 2o12 this half term and then do 2011 over the Easter break. You are welcome and encouraged to do extra ones – 2006, 2008 and 2013 are already printed out in the classroom and others are available on Moodle (pre 2008 tend to be a bit trickier).  We will look at your work in seminar groups according to the following schedule.

Notes: please use the Chorale Completion Cribsheet and be religious about checking Sop/Bass for parallels before doing inner parts and then writing the notes for each chord and ticking them off.
