Ye Shall Have a Song is the chorus at the end of Randall Thompson’s Peaceable Kingdom. I’m going to be writing a lot about this over the next couple of weeks. And Eric Whitacre’s Virtual Choir.
But for now, I’m going to retire to the couch and watch tv for hours and hours and hours. Because I transcribed all day yesterday, and I just blew out my voice singing high A’s at choir rehearsal just now. Still it was glorious and fun and satisfying and I’m so happy right now. This is what group singing will do for you.
Ye shall have a song and gladness of heart.
Buddy, who was once so camera shy, and who has CANCER, is camera-friendly and doing fine and looks as beautiful as can be (in my humble opinion).
