Home from War
- I'm back to NY. Safe and Sound. Still living in the dream however!
Thank you everyone.
I can't say much more than that........I truly Thank each and everyone.
The music was amazing, the voices came together!
You guys got me such really awesome presents.........I've never been
on the receiving end like that before.........I almost cried...
I didn't fall off the stage!!
In the years that I"ve been in the Choir, either as singer, alto
leader or director... I think this was the most fun I've had... really.
The rest of Thursday night last week, I thought I was floating....
well, I had some mead, so maybe I was, but really... I haven't had a
performance "high" like that in a while.
OK... now... how about some coments from the listening audience or the
singers????? let folks who weren't able to come to war this year...
have an insider view!

L'homme, l'homme, l'homme armé,
L'homme armé doibt on doubter, doibt on doubter.
On a fait partout crier,
Que chascun se viengne armer
D'un haubregon de fer.
The man, the man, the armed man,
The armed man
The armed man should be feared, should be feared.
Everywhere it has been proclaimed
That each man shall arm himself
With a coat of iron mail.
