Messiah

Sometimes it amazes me how a small change in the way we sing makes such a big difference. Tom is terrific at bringing about these changes. Because we all know the notes of Messiah, he is really focusing on bringing the music out in the most detailed way. I love hearing the differences that sometimes come from one simple change.

Work on this piece has been as hard, almost, as it was on more difficult music, notewise. I don't always remember to do the phrasing exactly right, the articulation, and some things are just plain difficult, at least for me, to accomplish. Not as hard as some things we had to learn in Bach's B-minor mass, but that was a different kind of difficulty.
