Re: Digest Number 90
- I consider that performance my favorite, of my entire singing career,
believe it or not. :-) We were awesome, the music was awesome, the
audience was awesome...I'll never forget the feeling I had as we
exited the barn, singing chant, lining up outside to wait for the
audience's reaction. You're right; one could hear a pin drop in the
silence following our exit. The tumultuous applause and hooting just
frosted the cake!
There was a blonde lade from Settmour Swamp who said her husband
taped it...could that be you? I'd dearly love to acquire a copy

a cool set! I'd love to be a part of singing that one again. With
that many people singing the piece, in the middle of the song the
whole piece suddenly takes on a life of its own. The Barn was so
silent after the end of that song that you could hear a pin drop. My
husband described his experience listening to the piece:

Performing arts Pavillion Schedule:
I have music and it might be ready in oh, I'd say
about a week.
at the moment the line up is:
Ave Maria (6 pt - SSAATB)
- same initial phrase as the 4 part (sol - do) but a
little different and heavier on the female ability.
Tu pauperum refugium (SATB and recorder)
(always wanted to do this one)
Mass sections are Kyrie from Pange Lingua (SATB) and
the GLORIA from Dux Ferrarie (hardly EVER done) (SATB)
Absalon fili mi (SATB) and ONLY if we have the bass
power to pull it off.
Ell Grillo (SATB)
MAYBE the 4 part L'homme arme) problem with that is
it's in the middle category of possibly NOT by
Ile Fantazies De Josquin (reocrder)
Mon Mary M'A Diffamee (recorder and smaller group
De Tous Biens Plaine (recorders)
I am including some recorder / vocal things and will
be doing separate recorder sessions for any one
interested or if you know someone.
Keep checking this group listing for updated ...
PS, We need tenors and basses... start recruiting. I
might need to put together a war chest full of booty
if we get desperate!!

but you can certainly add me to those interested (at least for the
pieces that don't need vocal tenors). I can play bass, alto, soprano
or sopranino (no tenor recorder, sorry).

- Gee, Richard, thanks a lot for "outing" me! :-S Yeah, I play recorder,
or at least I used to, and I do have a tenor, soprano, and alto though
it's been so long since I've played alto I'm sure I've forgotten my F
fingerings. If you're short of players I might be able to participate.
My primary issue would be scheduling rehearsals around child care.
Since the 4-6 pm choir practices don't conflict with battles, my
husband and I can juggle the kids reasonably well, but at other times
I'd have to bring them with me (and probably let them bring the
normally-forbidden Gameboys) or find someone else to watch them.

- I know that this is a little later than usual with
sending out music, getting websites up and running,
but my year is a little different too.
I am looking for a new job, and unfortunatly, I have
had some medical issues which kept me kinda out of the
loop for a while.
But I report that things seem ok, I have fought a
battle and won, not necessarily the war, but the
Needles to say, fighting at Pennsic this year will
not be an option for me - :( maybe next year.
And, I just got engaged, so mundane life has
interjected into my personal life in the SCA, BUT,
things are OK. Still need a job, but I am feeling
ALOT better and more energetic...
music will come out shortly
anyone who e mailed me will receive an email letter
with instructions and it will also appear on the list

We still need MEN to sing tenor parts and bass parts.

THANK YOU FOR RECORDER VOLUNTEERS - I really am
excited about creating more of a collegium musicum
with the Choir this year. Since so much of Josquin
just is wonderful on recorder, I feel that it would be
a great asset to include these pieces and it gives the
voices a chance to rest in between.
See you in August.
PS< for anyone local in the East, I will be at Barren
Sands war and Spring War Practice in Eisental just in
case anyone wanted to attend a singing session. I
will be hosting both singing and recorder at these
