The arrangements for the John Fletcher on-line help site have changed this year and the choir will not be renewing its subscription. Members can register with the site to gain independent access for a small fee. Click on the John Fletcher link in the red square above to gain access to the site.
John Fletcher Rehearsal Files:
John Fletcher has upgraded the membership system on his website. The new system has changed from how it used to work, is not compatible with the old system and does not lend itself easily to a blanket subscription for the choir. Because of this, we recommend you take out individual membership which will cost c. £2-3 for a full year if you wish to use this service. He has two forms of individual membership, ‘free’ for out-of-copyright material, and ‘paid for’ relating to material which is subject to copyright restrictions. This is all explained on his website https://johnfletchermusic.org. Choose REGISTRATION from the headings, then REGISTRATION INSTRUCTIONS where you will see the different types of membership on offer.
To get the full benefit of listening on-line we recommend using good quality loudspeakers or headphones.
