    Hi everybody!

    Sorry it's been so long since my last post. A lot has happened since then. The bad news is that mom had a stroke and is in a nursing home. Please pray for her. The good news is that a leading classical music record company wants me on their label!! Please pray for me!! I'm 60 years old and have never had a voice lesson. Needless to say, it's a bit intimidating to have a CD of me singing released into the serious classical music community! Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. This is a rework of Lauridsen's O Magnum Mysterium. Enjoy!



    Thanks,
    Bruce

    Beautifully done. It's addictive. I like that you sing all of the parts.

    That's superb, finely judged and beautifully executed. It strongly reminds me of some of the work of Eric Whitacre, and that's a very good thing. Fear less and do more - please!

    Incidentally, I would strongly recommend Cloudburst by Polyphany under Steven Layton to anyone to enjoyed this, esp. if - like me - choral music is not the first thing you think of to listen to.

    Bruce - my best wishes on all fronts.
