One of the difficult things this year is that we will not be able to be together in church to sing Christ is risen together. But here is a project we can all participate in to unify our Paschal voices. I will be collecting a recording of all participants singing Christ is risen and then put them all together into a virtual choir which will be presented during our Paschal service next week.
But for it to work, you need to record/sing it along with my recording so we sing on the same pitch and timing. And to do that you will need 2 devices: One device such as a computer to hear my recording, and one device such as a phone to record your own. Also, we do not want to hear my recording while you are recording your voice so you need to wear earbuds or a headset while listening on one device as you are singing into another device.
For example, your 2 devices might be your phone and a computer. Pick which one you will record from. Most computers and phones have a way to record. You may have to download a recording app for a phone. Let’s say you will record into your phone. You’ll need to get the recording app on your phone ready and the computer on our webpage ready to hit the play button. The play button is just below. Plug your earbuds into the computer so you will hear the computer but your phone will not. Hit record on your phone. Hit play on the computer. You’ll hear me sing Christ is risen two times. You can sing both or just the second time. The first time is so you can hear what it is supposed to sound like. Then after the second time, stop the recording on your phone and share it with me by email at FrAlex@orthodoxfl.com. I’ll take it from there, put them all together and play it for all the world to hear the joy and celebration of the Lord’s resurrection. Let’s get them all in by Wednesday so I have time to put it together.
