Frabjous Times

June 29, 2003

Feast of Saints Peter and Paul, Apostles
Entrance — For All the Saints
Responsorial — Psalm 34
Alleluia — Matthew 16:18
Offertory — Blest Are They
Communion — There is a Balm in Gilead
Recessional — Lift Up Your Hearts
I sang solo on the Alleluia verse, which I found difficult because of the irregular phrasing. "You are Peter, and upon this rock, I will build my church, and the gates of the netherworld shall not prevail against it."
Our choir director had a big writeup for her project in the NY Times Science section for 24 June 2003. She is doing postgraduate research on rehabilitation for pianists with a particular type of motor neurological impairment caused by overuse. Things seem to be taking off for her work all of a sudden, which we in the choir get a vicarious kick out of.
