choir concert

yesterday was the first concert that i sang with the wiltener sängerknaben (wilten boy’s choir).

it was officially recorded (for a potential new cd), so i don’t think i’m allowed to post my own (crappy-quality) recordings… but some of yesterday’s songs are on the choir’s sound-sample page: try vollendet ist das große werk (haydn), or ave verum corpus (mozart).
other than that, we sang pieces of schütz, gerhold, more haydn, isaac’s innsbruck, ich muss dich lassen, and pie jesu of bernstein’s requiem (which is almost tacky. almost).

my personal highlight was the 6-bar-short soloist part in haydn’s “die himmel erzählen” (from “the creation”):

dem kommenden tage sagt es der tag;
die nacht, die verschwand der folgenden nacht;
die nacht, die verschwand der folgenden nacht.
