Sunday Choral Report

The choir sounded quite wonderful yesterday!  It never fails to amaze me how much better we sound from the loft compared to the rehearsal room in the basement of the church, particularly with certain types of music.

This week, we sang Josquin‘s 4-voice Salve Regina during the offertory and Jesu Dulcis Memoria (Tomas Luis.de Victoria) during communion (pdf).  They are simply thrilling to sing.  I can’t find a video of the Josquin, but here’s one of the latter.

The text, in English:

Jesus, sweet remembrance,
Granting the heart its true joys,
But above honey and all things Is His sweet presence.
