Day One of Hymns Project

Jun 26, 2014

Good evening! And what a good evening it is after a vigorous day of recording. St. Luke’s Episcopal Nave is a lovely acoustic space. Brad is doing a fine job of capturing the sound of the choir. We were blessed with recording success in 13 songs today. Tomorrow we look forward to finishing the last 4 pieces. “Send Forth Thy Spirit” will be a highlight in tomorrow’s work. 

Brad brought his mandolin and serenaded the choir with a few lovely Irish tunes. It was a wonderful space to hear the fine details of his playing.

We celebrated Darcy Jantzi’s birthday today with ice cream cake and two singings of the birthday song. Darcy is such a star in our tenor section, and we all are frequent willing witnesses to his wit and wisdom.

After a pork BBQ dinner, several of the singers travelled north to the Jonestown School for a few games of volleyball. By 9:30 we finished and returned to our hosts.
