>No rest for me yet, even after the premiere (which went very, very well): today is Pfingsten (Pentecost) and I had somewhat stupidly agreed to sing the morning mass at a little village church just outside of town. Since it was a gorgeous day and the view is so nice out there, I brought my camera along.
This tiny church managed to fit its choir, a small pick-up orchestra and four soloists behind the altar for Haydn’s St. Nicholas Mass. It was a little crowded; every time I stood up to sing, I had to be careful not to hit the head of the violinist sitting in front of me with my score. It all went surprisingly well, however, and now I can kick back and enjoy the legal holiday tomorrow.
