Well, last night we got "off and running" with the first Cathedral Choir rehearsal of the new season. Was missing a few people, but pretty much everyone turned out. Jumped right in and started rehearsing the fall repertoire: getting some known anthems back to speed (Martin "When I Survey", Farrant "Lord, for Thy Tender Mercy's Sake"), looked at some new stuff (Cherwien "Prayer for Peace", Rutter "Open Thou Mine Eyes", Beck "Offertory"). But I think the highlight was sightreading the main choral parts of the Biebl "Ave Maria". They LOVE IT! We'll be using it on Advent IV, and at Lessons and Carols.
PS: GO STEELERS!
