Karl!  Are you behind the camera?   8)

I assume this is your choir?

I am behind the camera, and this is Triad.  If my recovery from laryngitis were quicker, I might not have been out in the audience to take the photo  8)

Today's preview performance of the Gloria (and sung to a very nice audience, I should add):

While I have had a reasonably normal and useable speaking voice for almost two weeks now, I cannot yet sing, really.  There is perhaps a perfect fifth in the heart of my range in which I can sing, but I can also feel right away that I should only tire the vocal folds quickly.  There is nothing for it, but to wait it out.

Although I remain hopeful that my singing voice may return in order to be of use for the Triad concerts this Saturday & Sunday, I simply do not know the timing.

A fellow church music director with whom I have collaborated in the past announced yesterday that he was looking for a Christmas piece (not too difficult for the choir) including three percussionists. As a lark (because there was only the narrow chance) last night and this morning, I took the conclusion of Intermezzo II from White Nights, and arranged it as a setting of the Christmas antiphon, Hodie Christus natus est.

Yesterday, I made a start on what will eventually be a symphony for band, titled Karl’s Big (But Happily Incomplete) Map to the Body.

The first movement is The Nerves.  And this is just a start.

In more somber news, our parish will have three funerals or memorial services in the coming weeks.  For one, there was a request for an upbeat jazzy trombone solo, Just a Closer Walk With Thee.  I consulted the Pastor, who reported that clarinet would do just fine.  I have known this for two weeks and a half, but between laryngitis, the Triad concerts, and Thanksgiving, it is only this morning that I saw to the requisite composition.

A few modest modifications, some of them simply to repair miscalculation (my arrangement runs two measures for each one of the source hymn, but I "dropped" a measure here and there).  Withal, I think the glide is yet smoother.
