One thought on “Music By the Bridge Concert

  1. You have a very talented choir but IMHO the above BB composition/video has frankly an awful melody.
    Compare it to the majestic beauty of McCartney’s Wanderlust

    I can already hear harmonies on the chorus and brass sections.Paul even sings a counter melody at 2 mins 16
    Not trying to put your team’s work down but there are some amazing non classical songs which you can use and which are guaranteed to fill those pews.I am happy to give you a list which will really convey loads of emotion to the listener.
    Please do check my songs out and I am open to your criticisms of my compositions.My weblink is

    I assume you are on Soundcloud if not please sign up because it’s free and you will receive loads of feedback;much better than Digg/Stumble etc.
    Good Luck
