recording

Our parish choir often makes an archival recording of our concerts which are burned into CDs and shared with choir members. We do not market them to the public.

I finally got the one from our Mozart concert with St. Paul's back in November.

When I learn a piece of music like this, it is usually experienced from the bass section. Only after pulling myself away from the piece, like in a recording, can I hear the piece whole and am often surprised by how it really sounds.

Listening to our recording of Mozart's Grand Mass (Mass in C minor), there are times when I forget that I was there singing. So that's what it sounded like. It is a powerful piece of music, and we were lucky to participate in it. I was lucky to participate in it. I am not the musician in our family, and am grateful that they let me sing in the choir.
