The Quay Live Lockdown Concert

We were honoured to be videoed in July performing four numbers for the Quay Theatre’s Online Series.

Here’s the video, the numbers are Over the Rainbow, It Don’t Mean A Thing (If It Ain’t Got That Swing), Nella Fantasia and Mr Blue Sky: The Accidentals Quay Online July 2020

Nella Fantasia – in lockdown

Another lockdown effort, this time with the added difficulty of singing in Italian! We hope you enjoy it.

Nella Fantasia

Sarah Brightman

We’re polishing up our Italian pronunciation for a new four-part version of Ennio Morricone’s beautiful melody, based on Gabriel’s theme from the 1986 film The Mission.

There’s some controversy about who wrote the Italian words, but it seems likely it was musicals star Sarah Brightman (rather different from her lead vocals on StarShip Trooper or as a Hot Gossip dancer, but there you go).

Here’s a link to her YouTube introduction and performance – we will be emulating the floatiness of her vocal, but not her dress sense! (sorry Sarah) 🙂
