      You're not a Laurel after 20 years of Known World Choir? (And you don't
      sit on your laurels; you teach.) Yes, it is very difficult to be a
      Performance Laurel.

      My grandson would still be young for a children's choir since he is too
      young to read, unless he could hear a recording of the selections long
      before Pennsic. He already sings. I would guess at any age, children's
      choir rehearsals would have to be short, and the children would have to
      hear the music before Pennsic. The first year will be the hardest. I
      think it is a great idea, but it will have to be coordinated with all
      the other children's activities.

        Google and Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/L'homme_arm%C3%A9

        Original French
        L'homme, l'homme, l'homme armé,
        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.
