Hear Herts & Soul in Action
With over 100 singers and a repertoire of over 215 songs, our Soul Sisters and Brothers have sucked on a lot of Vocalzones in the last 8 years (other throat pastilles are available)!
Also numerous are the many fantastic memories of singing a broad repertoire of songs together in a range of themed concerts in venues of varying comforts, capacities and acoustics… from our very first performance in a small rain-sodden marquee at the Bishop’s Stortford Music Festival (where we clearly outnumbered our audience and we like to recall that our ‘support’ act was singer Sam Smith – but he was across the field performing in a slightly bigger marquee), to selling out the Harlow Playhouse and Rhodes Theatre.
(If you’d like to hear us live, the details of our next concert are on the Concerts & Events page).
But here we’d would like to share with you some audio snippets highlighting certain types of repertoire….
Herts and Soul sing classic POP across the decades: From Abba, the Beachboys and Simon & Garfunkel to Adele, Cyndi Lauper, Jess Glynne and a splash of Ed Sheeran:
Herts and Soul sing SOUL, MOTOWN AND GOSPEL: Some of our Soul Sister and Soul Brother favourites are here – ‘I’ll Be There’, ‘Joyful Joyful’, ‘September’, ‘You Got the Love’, ‘Lean on Me’ and ‘Ain’t No Mountain High Enough’:
Herts and Soul sing ROCK: From our stirring choir anthem, Coldplay’s ‘Viva La Vida’, to ‘Walking in Memphis’, ‘Don’t Stop Believin’ and a big, bold ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’:
Herts and Soul sing the MUSICALS: Our favourite has to be a medley from ‘Les Miserables’ (of course), mixed in here with a musical snippet from ‘West Side Story’, a belter from ‘Sweet Charity’, a modern classic from ‘Rent’ and a gentle skip down the yellow brick road:
Herts and Soul, accompanied by the Umbrella Big Band, sing JAZZ AND SWING: If, like us Soulsters, you love a bit of Swing – ‘Let’s Face the Music and Dance’ together. We hope that ‘We’ll Meet Again’ because ‘You Make Me Feel So Young’. Then ‘Come Fly With Me’ to the ‘White Cliffs of Dover’ where we’ll ‘Sway’:
