Great recording session today

Made some great music today. I was able to get it into my computer and it is available here for download. Overall, they are great recordings and I think we have found our new recording home. The levels are set too high in a couple of places so there is distortion, but I think you will like what you hear. We'll hit these again tomorrow and also the rest. Great work today, gang.

The files are in MP3 format but rather large because I gave them a pretty high bitrate. Translation: it will take you a while to download them if you have a slow connection.

Dr. Copeland,
You might want to check your song links. You flip-flopped the titles for Mate Saule and Redz Kur. I also had a hard time getting the songs to play. When I clicked the links, the screen that came up just had the quicktime logo. (I was finally able to hear them b/c my lil' bro took a long way around to get them to open--basically a lot of copying and pasting). For the people who don't have a resident computer pro, you might want to try adjusting the access links.

Dr. Copeland,
I think that this is coolest thing ever. I just got back from Tim's bachelor party, got on the blog, (12:58 a.m.) and I'm listening to our stuff thinking, wow!! This is us. I am gonna rip all this stuff off and burn it on a cd in a few minutes just so I can brag to everyone I meet in KY this summer how kick arse our choir is!!!!

Anyways, Happy Cinco De Mayo Guys
Dr. Carter. :)

Phil,

I enjoyed listening to your recordings very much. I do know they're not for public-public consumption, but I do agree that we caan learn from each other's recordings. My choir took a short tour to New Orleans a week ago. One of the best times of the trip, in my opinion, was when we visited Southeast Louisiana University and observed part of their choir rehearsal. It was a rehearsal of course, and everything wasn't perfect. But, it was inspiring for my singers (and for me) to hear their singing, watch their conductor, observe their rehearsal process, etc. I almost thingk that's more useful than hours of near-perfect performance at ACDA conventions. I'd much rather visit various rehearsals and see how they rehearse.

Anyways, that's why I referenced your recording sessions...hopefully to inspire my singers as they listened to another choir. Hope that was ok!

Good luck on your Paris trip. I know you'll enjoy it!
