A Happy Ending

The Brahms Requiem:

1. I'm glad we did it and that you all had the experience of another major choral orchestral work.

2. I'm glad it's over.

3. We've done several of the greats over the past three years:

2008 Brahms Requiem
2007 Verdi Requiem
2006 Mozart Solemn Vespers
2005 Handel Messiah

4. Next year we are talking about another great one: Orff's Carmina Burana. After that, we'll take a break. Major works are sometimes thrilling, but they certainly exact a toll from the singers and conductor.

5. Now . . . onward and upward. Comments welcomed.

Dude. I just woke up.

I felt so awesome about last night, both personally and ensemble-wise,

I met some awesome dudes from the other choir,

and I got some first-hand experience with Maestro Brown.

Total rockage. Can't wait 'till Carmina.
