RE: [KWChoir] Requesting Help from a Couple of Singers for a Vigil Mass
Good Lady Annetje:
With regard to your request, I do not believe I know this particular setting of the Kyrie, but that should be no problem. I read music, am an experienced choral singer, and have sung Kyrie’s before.
I sing in the soprano range.
As a practicing Catholic, participation in a mass is a non issue for me. If scheduling and my time commitments allow (I am a retainer to Their Majesties, Lucan and Jana, Kind and Queen of the East) I would be honored to participate in a Pelican Vigil.
Please let me know what develops. I will be camping with the Canton of River Keep across the road from the Castle on the list field and directly behind the North Gate. My cell phone is 518-588-6692.
Yours in service
(Lady Marea Veronica d’Estoile)
Should you wish I will volunteer.
I know the mass. I was born and raised a Catholic, although I no longer practice. I learned Gregorian Chant in the third grade and sang it for five years. I am also a professionally trained singer. I usually sing bass with the KWC, but my lady and I did not care for the program this year, so I am free. I know several Keries. Two minutes will not kill me.
I used to be a second tenor, but as age has intervened, I usually do lyric baritone or bass. My vocal range is completely within your needs. Should you wish, I will audition for you. Oh! I am an old fart. 64. But I ain't dead. Let me know.

Subject: [KWChoir] Requesting Help from a Couple of Singers for a Vigil Mass
I'm hoping to find a handful of singers to help sing a Kyrie in a small Catholic Mass to be celebrated as part of a Pelican vigil. The piece is a short (2 minute) simple plainchant and organum from the Notre Dame School.
The chant range is all within the octaves on either side of middle C (low D to middle C, an octave above that, and G to F in between), with a drone parked on low D.
If anyone would be comfortable participating in this manner in an actual mass, could you please contact me privately? Thanks.
