Choir

Last night's rehearsal started with the altos and basses providing the grounding for a soprano-tenor descant on a hymn...just to warm up.   This was followed by two John Rutter anthems, for this coming Sunday, and then a Stanford and then an Elgar "Ave Verum" and then two Tallis anthems and then an assault on one of Britten's "Te Deums."  Not the "Festival Te Deum," thank goodness, which I can't like, but the gentler one, still somewhat of a workout. 

I  hadn't had a voice lesson before (D- had to go to San Marcos in the afternoon) so had more energy for the whole rehearsal, but it was still a workout, even though he kept telling us that the piece in hand was "really easy..."  Except for the Britten, which isn't, though not nearly as hard as some of his others.
