To get a bit of a change from the (in cases) slightly dry day to day work in the office, I’ve joined two choirs a wee while back — a church choir and a gospel choir. I just love them and can’t wait for Tuesdays and Wednesdays to get my voice going again (I’m singing bass, for those who are curious).
Last Sunday, we had a concert in my local church. We sang a “Kantate” by Johann Sebastian Bach, and the “Historia der Geburt Jesu” by Heinrich Schchütz, which I both liked a lot.
To my surpise, our church (isn’t it impressive that even for the curch there is a wikipedia article?!) was pretty much full! Wow. They must have somehow known in advance that I was singing ;-) Nah, not really, I guess…
Dad always thought laughter was the best medicine, which I guess is why several of us died of tuberculosis.
