"Once upon a time there existed here in our most talented and industrious Barony a group of
gentles who did lift their voices in song..."
The Ravensong Choir was founded in 1997 by Morgaine of Donegal (although music direction
responsibility was later assumed by Gwendoline). The group was a choir of mixed voices (SATB)
that performed for local events as well as for a number of prominent gatherings, including Twelfth
Night and Pennsic; they even participated in the musical competition at Ice Dragon and won in the
"group music" category twice! The group's repertoire included madrigals, religious and secular
pieces, a number of delightful Christmas selections, and some original or "personalized" pieces for
the Barony and Kingdom.
Over the years, however, the choir's members grew ever more overwhelmed juggling their lives'
events, and slowly, the music faded away. Now, on the tenth anniversary of the founding of the
Ravensong choir, it is being resurrected to sing again! Soon will the joyous melodies be heard
throughout the Barony once more...
1. Ravensong is open to anyone and everyone who is interested and can commit to attending
rehearsals. There are no auditions.
2. Rehearsals will be announced at least one week in advance, and anyone who cannot attend is
required to contact the director with a valid reason AT LEAST 24 hours in advance. That said,
emergencies happen and excused absences will be given provided the director is contacted.
3. Participation in performances will be decided by majority group vote. If not enough members
can make it, we won't do it.
4. Questions and suggestions about improvements to the group and group policies are encouraged
and welcome. The experience should be a fun one for everyone!
