Bounding O soul thou journeyest forth!
Well, that's another semester of Choral Union done and another amazing piece to add to my mental list of music in which I have participated. It's also my second Vaughan Williams setting of Walt Whitman, the first being Dona Nobis Pacem
(which remains one of my absolute favorites).
The concert was well attended, and being in the Capital Theater rather than Mills Music Hall was an interesting experience. The sound felt a lot different. There were some parts that I could barely hear, but other bits popped out at me in ways they never had before. It was also nice, I must admit, to be able to sit down during our longer tacit sections.
From my, albeit limited, perspective, everything went very well. We certainly got a good deal of applause at the end. My voice, finally back, held out, which was good. Now the trick is to see how long it takes to get sections of Sea Symphony out of my head.
UPDATE: Damn, the 1st link now only seems to work on preview, but if you follow it you get a 404. Bummer. I can't find a good replacement, either.
