Requiem!

It turns out that pickup choirs are not an exclusively American thing. I was at choir practice tonight, and one of the choir members was selling tickets for a charity pickup choir performance of Mozart's Requiem in January! Naturally, I forked over my £10 right away. I haven't sung Mozart's Requiem since junior year at the Fairest College, but I remember really enjoying it. I still have my old score from way back in the day, containing not only my score notations, but also some mysterious notes that clearly meant something to me back in the day, but I've totally forgotten now. Who are Andrea and Isabel? What is the meaning of 209X? Why do I have the name of the Yiddish film Grine Felder written on my Mozart score? The world will never know.

But, hey, I get to sing the Requiem again!

oh boy, I SO love mozart's Requiem...Now I'm jealous!

Nerd note: when my little sis was very young, ( like ten or eleven) she once excused herself from desert and then we found her sitting at my dad's favourite armchair in the study, eating her pie, reading a book while the requiem played in the background.

Your sister has secured a place near and dear to my heart, just from that one little story alone.
