I had been reluctant to sign up this year, because the last time I sang with the choir it seemed like so much work. It had been in the back of my mind to try it again, but it was your being so short on basses that tipped the balance.
I found the process much more enjoyable this year. You have a real talent for keeping it light while getting the most out of your singers.
I'm already considering singing again next year.

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.
