choir this morning was okay - mild annoyances. things were a little shaky for a couple reasons. zeroth, the other singers arrived halfway through the first litany, so I was doing it solo and it took a little bit to repitch and get settled once they arrived. first, for whatever reason, the kids were a little more quiet than usual, which is fine, but this meant that, when we had a little hesitancy getting moving at a couple points, the congregation and the altar jumped in with their own loud opinions about pitch and tempo (that did not agree). the thing about the altar opinion is that the priest is a loud tenor with a nice voice, but when he jumps in, it's usually the melody an octave down rather than the tenor line, in his own pace which is not responsive to direction within the choir, according to whatever arrangement and timing that is most familiar, and once it begins is loud enough that it cannot respond to any external influence. i would just say that the choir was on pitch and timed right among themselves.
rehearsals have been going well, but mostly covering the week's music and not new stuff. but getting a little bit. current plan from on high: never do new stuff. bah.
have a test tuesday evening. have a lot of work to do on project that's not getting done. theoretically at some point have to get done.
shoot, just noted that the nominal due date of one homework assignemnt was the 21st - but we've always been bouncing the numbers around, wasn't sure when actually wanted done. oh well.
tgraveling to second city next weekend. agenda completely full.
been busy being shocked by the whole gamerghazi thing. "BUT ETHICS."
